Teng Wu, a faculty member specializing in structural, bridge and wind engineering, received the 2018 International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) prize for his contributions to structural engineering.
Andrew Whittaker, SUNY Distinguished Professor in UB’s Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, is leading a multi-institutional initiative to reduce nuclear power plant complexity and cost by integrating seismic protection systems.
An article on Design Build Network about the need to make buildings more earthquake resistant in light of predictions that there will be a noticeable increase in earthquakes in 2018 as a result of changes in the earth’s rotational patterns interviews Andrew Whittaker, professor of civil and structural engineering.
This report presents an analytical study of the seismic performance of seismically isolated buildings and comparable non-isolated buildings designed by the procedures of ASCE/SEI 7-10 and -16 at a particular location in California. Download the report for free here
