Civil Engineering - Study Findings on Civil Engineering Are Outlined in Reports from University of Illinois
2014 APR 30 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators publish new report on Civil Engineering. According to news reporting originating from Urbana, Illinois, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "To address the problem of steel corrosion, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars are often used as reinforcement in concrete structures. However, conventional FRP bars are characterized by linear elastic behavior that limits their efficacy in seismic structural applications. ...read more
Civil Engineering - Study Data from University of Windsor Update Knowledge of Civil Engineering
2014 APR 30 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Data detailed on Civil Engineering have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Windsor, Canada, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Accurate prediction of optimum damper size and its corresponding maximum attainable modal damping ratio is essential for the design of a linear viscous damper to control cable vibrations on cable-stayed bridges. The stiffness within the damper and the damper support would affect both the required damper size and the resulting equivalent modal damping ratio of the damped cable and thus influence the damper efficiency. ...read more
