Dr. Jaganathan’s lab works to develop sensors and condition assessment technologies for buried infrastructure. The lab’s focus is on acoustic, elastic-guided waves, and electromagnetic wave-type sensors. Research conducted by our team is multidisciplinary in nature and involves computational work, hardware development, and data processing algorithms. Sample projects include the development of ultra wide-band radar for imaging of buried pipes, elastic guided wave inspection and characterization of concrete pipes, and development of “see-ahead” sensors for horizontal directional drilling (HDD) machines.
