Dr. Franklin Moon is a widely respected bridge expert who has been called to testify before state and federal legislative committees on infrastructure health, planning, and research. A leader in infrastructure performance and vulnerability, he has particular expertise in sensing technologies, structural identification, structural health monitoring, numerical modeling, and estimation of service life.
His research has resulted in a unique system (termed THMPER) capable of performing rapid structural safety assessment of highway bridges, which received the ASCE Pankow Award for Innovation in 2017.
He also has developed a novel temperature-driven response approach to structural concerns and various model-experiment correlation strategies to assess infrastructure vulnerability with a focus on multiple model techniques.
Moon got his B.S. and M.S. from the University of Delaware and his Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology
