University of South Carolina College of Engineering and Computing Research

Welcome to the Structural Dynamics and Intelligent Infrastructure (SDII) laboratory. We create a better standard of living through research in intelligent infrastructure such as identifying damage in infrastructure, increase the resilience of buildings to natural and man made disasters, and reducing the cost of health care by developing new techniques for human monitoring. Our research is funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Standards and Technology, the South Carolina Department of Transportation, and the Alzheimer’s association among other institutions.

Dr. Caicedo’s area of specialization is in Structural Engineering with emphasis in Structural Dynamics. His research interests include both numerical and experimental research in the areas of structural dynamics, model updating, structural health monitoring, earthquake engineering and structural control. Dr. Caicedo is member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, George E. Brown Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation, the Society of Experimental Mechanics and the American Society of Engineering Educators.
