Papers Published

Two new papers are now available online in the “Just Released” section of the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering:

  • Abrams, D., Fahnestock, L., and Gregor, T. (2015). “Measured Seismic Behavior of Hybrid Masonry Structural Systems.” J. Struct. Eng., 10.1061/(ASCE)ST.1943-541X.0001406, 04015168.
  • Stoakes, C. and Fahnestock, L. (2016). “Strong-Axis Stability of Wide Flange Steel Columns in the Presence of Weak-Axis Flexure.” J. Struct. Eng., 10.1061/(ASCE)ST.1943-541X.0001448, 04016004.

The hybrid masonry research was supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. CMMI 0936464 as part of the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation.  Additional support was provided by the American Institute of Steel Construction, the National Concrete Masonry Association, and the International Masonry Institute.

The column stability research was partially supported by the American Institute of Steel Construction.
