John Moughty

Polytechnic University of Catalonia

John Moughty is an early stage researcher in the Marie Curie funded TRUSS ITN. He is investigating vibration based damage detection techniques for bridge structures and is based in the Polytechnic University of Catalonia under the supervision of Prof. Joan Roman Casas. John is a former NUIG undergrad and TCD Masters graduate. He also has three years professional experience in the offshore oil and gas industry.


Overtime, the structural condition of bridges tends to decline due to a number of degradation processes, such as; creep, corrosion and cyclic loading, among others. Considerable research has been conducted over the years to... [ view full abstract ]
