    ► In the news...

  • 2016 fib PhD Symposium in Tokyo, with a hundred participants from all over the world:
     
    + João Simões received the Best Lecture Award for his paper Punching shear strength and behaviour of compact reinforced concrete footings
     
    + Darko Tasevski received the Best Lecture Award and a Top 5 distinction for his paper Behaviour of concrete in compression and shear under varying strain rates: from rapid to long-term
     
  • Aurelio Muttoni and Miguel Fernández Ruiz ar the 2014 recipients of the Wason Medal of ACI for their paper article "Effect of load distribution and variable depth on shear resistance of slender beams without stirrups"
    by A. Pérez Caldentey, A. Padilla, A. Muttoni and M. Fernández Ruiz
     
  • MOOC course The Art of Structures II (in French with English subtitles) is offered on the Coursera platform.
