Abstract

his paper presents an overview of the Virtual Smart Structures and Dynamics Lab (VSSDL) at the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi. VSSDL has been set up as a part of the ‘Virtual Labs’ project sponsored by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). The aim of the lab is to be emerge as an effective medium of learning for those students who do not have access to specialized lab in the area of smart materials and structures or those who wish to take up and R&D career in this field. The lab covers experiments concerning interdisciplinary applications of smart materials and structures concerning structural dynamics. The lab provides two types of experiments- trigger based and simulation based, both of which can be effectively used for learning purposes. Students from all over the world can take advantage of the facilities to master advanced concepts thorough online experiments of VSSDL.
