15WCEE Paper on FEA of Beam-Column Joint Failure

Next week I’ll be in Lisbon for the 15th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering. My paper—on nonlinear finite element analysis of older reinforced concrete beam-column joints—will be presented on Wednesday. This one is a summary of one of the first major studies in my PhD. There are 3700 accepted papers, so good luck finding me there!

Here is my poster (click for pdf):

If you’re going to be there, do ping me on Twitter, send me an email, or stop by my poster on Wednesday so we can wax poetic over the exciting field of nonlinear constitutive modeling of concrete failure. This also might be the first engineering conference I’ve ever attended where there were more than two people on the official hashtag—we’ll see but I’m not holding my breath.

FYI, I made the poster using a free PowerPoint template (nobody tell Tufte, okay?) from Imago Visuals. It wasn’t worth the trouble of hacking on a LaTeX/Beamer template for this one conference.
