The report of the 2019 Research into Practice Award winner. The project report covers the development of accurate assessment and design procedures for FRP retrofit solutions. The project outcomes were incorporated in to the Turkish Earthquake Code and New Zealand Seismic Assessment Guidelines to be used by structural engineers.

Existing reinforced concrete (RC) structures built before the introduction of modern seismic codes contribute significantly to the disastrous consequences of earthquakes. Umit Akguzel undertook meticulous analytical and numerical modeling, as well as verification methods that included extensive experimental work, to verify the feasibility of his analysis.

<h4>Viewpoint: Can cybernetics help us better understand our design conversations with machines?</h4>

Viewpoint: Can cybernetics help us better understand our design conversations with machines?

With the introduction of cognitive machines, the cybernetic processes that define structural engineering as a discipline are facing rapid change. However, by looking objectively at design as a cybernetic process, we can better understand the risks and rewards and find an optimum way for humans and machines to work in partnership, argues Paul Mullett.
