Welcome to Laboratory for System
Health & Risk Management!
Laboratory for System Health & Risk Management (SHRM Lab.) was founded in September 2010, located in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Seoul National University, Republic of Korea.
SHRM Lab. is the pioneer and global leader in providing innovative knowledge and resources to support reliability, sustainability, structural integrity, and risk management of complex engineered systems. Our research is dedicated to a well-balanced interaction of physical experiments and virtual testing for seeking the optimal solution of system analysis and design. We are currently exploring four research avenues: Prognostics and Health Management (PHM), Reliability-Based Design Optimization (RBDO), Energy Harvesting (EH), and Statistical Model Verification and Validation (V&V).
The research development requires key engineering and science kernels such as applied mechanics, statistical data analysis (machine learning and pattern recognition, etc.), advanced computer simulation (multiphysics analysis, etc.), sensor manipulation, mathematical optimization, and creative techniques for use in complex engineered systems. We have worked on consumer products (electronics, automotive, batteries, appliances, etc.) and large-scale systems (power plants, airplanes, wind turbines, manufacturing lines, etc.).
With such efforts, we will secure the international status as one of the world's leading research groups in the field of health prognostics & risk management for adaptively-reliable, safe, and operationally-available engineered systems. Thank you very much.
