We got a competitive grant from the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology

PI: Dr. Hezi Y. Grisaro CO-PIs: Prof. Aaron Sprecher and Prof. Arnon Bentur We aim to investigate the potential to implement the design of 3D-printed concrete elements in existing design codes and procedures. As 3D-printed concrete elements are getting more popular and offer advantages to fabricating intricate geometries and optimizing structural elements, implementing the reinforcement for structural components…

We got two research grants to study the global behavior of structural elements under close-in detonations based on fast-running

We got two research grants to study the global behavior of structural elements under close-in detonations based on fast-running tools and relatively simple but accurate methods. Current design standards (e.g. CSA S850-12, ASCE/SEI 59-11, UFC 3-340-02, and others) suggest using nonlinear equivalent SDOF systems to study the global response of structural elements to blast loads.…
