School of Civil and Environmental Engineering doctoral student Bradley Dolphyn is working to figure out just what happened to the massive concrete containment building at the Crystal River 3 nuclear power plant in Florida. Cracks in the building ultimately led its owner, Duke Energy, to shut down the facility.
School of Civil and Environmental Engineering associate professor David Scott spent two Fridays this month taking groups of elementary teachers through the School’s Structural Engineering and Materials Lab and showing them how math and science play an important role in the world.
A new “Expert Voices” op-ed published June 13 on the website LiveScience features Karen and John Huff School Chair Reginald DesRoches’ research simulating earthquakes to develop innovative rehab measures for a common type of reinforced-concrete building.
Glaucio Paulino has the heart and soul of an artist, straining against the structured thinking of a sharp and analytical mind. And it works for him. Paulino joined the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering in January as the new Raymond Allen Jones Chair.
Earthquakes are unpredictable and devastating, but we’re getting better at building our communities to withstand the shaking ground, according to experts in the cover story of Boss Magazine's spring 2015 issue. Among those experts was Karen and John Huff School Chair Reginald DesRoches.
Researchers at the state-of-the-art Structural Engineering and Materials Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology are using a full-scale model building to test new ways to protect structures from earthquakes and potentially save lives.
Through a grant provided by the National Science Foundation, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are testing retrofits that potentially can make very common reinforced-concrete buildings safer and more secure.
