Assistant professor Negar Elhami Khorasani and PhD student Ramla Qureshi will travel to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) next week to participate in three different sessions Elhami Khorasani has organized with international colleagues.
SUNY Distinguished Professor Andrew S. Whittaker recently secured an award from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) related to the seismic isolation of nuclear power plants and their internal structures, systems and components.
Geotechnical engineers at UB and Tongji University will utilize each other’s unique lab equipment and experience in a joint-research project, to begin later this year. Tongji University is the top civil engineering school in the world, according to the Academic Ranking of World University (AWRU), or Shanghai Rankings.
The main objective of this report is to improve the profession’s understanding of the seismic behavior of low aspect ratio reinforced concrete shear walls by analyzing data from tests of 12 large scale wall specimens at the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory at the University at Buffalo.
