Iman BehmaneshIman Behmanesh

Iman Behmanesh is a Ph.D. student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Tufts University. Iman's research is in the field of vibration-based structural health monitoring with emphasis on probabilistic methods and he is working with Prof. Moaveni. He is now employing advance system and damage identification methods such as stochastic subspace identification for modal identification and finite element model updating for damage detection of civil structures. Iman is also involved in the continuous monitoring of Dowling Hall Footbridge located at Tufts Campus. The bridge is equipped with 8 accelerometers and 10 thermocouples which measure and transfer the real time data through a wireless network.

Iman received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Sharif University in 2005 and his M.S. in Earthquake Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology in 2007. The topic of his M.S. dissertation was on evaluating soil structure interaction on nonlinear behavior of structures with a focus on Inelastic Displacement Ratios and Strength Reduction Factor. Evaluation and retrofitting of existing buildings against seismic loads were his major role in consulting engineering companies before the start of his PhD studies.
