November 6-7, 2012: Dr. Kijewski-Correa presents a pair of seminars at RPI: "Is There Hope for the 1 in 7? A Story of Empowerment in Post-Quake Haiti" and "Learning from the Big Boys: What a Decade of Full-Scale Monitoring Has Taught Us About the Performance of Tall Buildings in Urban Zones"

September 12, 2012: Kijewski-Correa delivers Keynote at CONSTRUCT 2012 Conference in Phoenix entitled “Empowering Sustainable Reconstruction of the Residential Sector Following the 2010 Haitian Earthquake"

October 2012: Dr. Kijewski-Correa was named to a three year term as the new chair of the ASCE/SEI Technical Committee on Tall Buildings. Kijewski-Correa previously held leadership positions as the committee secretary and head of two subcommittees on Human Comfort in Tall Buildings and Full-Scale Monitoring.

July 2012: Dr. Audrey Bentz and Dr. Kijewski-Correa received the T K Hsieh Award by the Institution of Civil Engineers (UK) for their paper entitled “Wind-Induced Vibrations of Buildings: Role of Transient Events.” The prize is given annually to the authors of the best paper published by the Institution in the field of structural and soil vibration. Dr. Bentz traveled in October to London to receive the award.

News Spotlight: EMI/PMC 2012

Co-Chairs Alexandros Taflanidis, Associate Professor, Tracy Kijewski-Correa, Linbeck Associate Professor and Ahsan Kareem, Moran Professor of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences hosted EMI/PMC 2012: the 2012 Joint Conference of the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) – the American Society of Civil Engineers premiere annual mechanics conference -- and 11th ASCE Joint Specialty Conference on Probabilistic Mechanics and Structural Reliability – offered by ASCE every four years as a special venue for related work in probabilistic methods. The conference, which ran June 17-20, 2012 brought together over 400 scholars from around the world to exchange recent developments in mechanics and probabilistic methods across wide ranging fields drawing from the broad disciplines of civil and mechanical engineering. The conference featured six keynote speakers who participated in interactive keynote panels, which included distinguished Notre Dame faculty from AME, CEEES, and CBE. Meanwhile, 72 technical sessions hosted nearly 450 papers on wide ranging subjects including natural hazard risk assessment and mitigation, biomechanics, nanomaterials, structural health monitoring and computational mechanics.

The conference provided numerous venues for formal and informal interactions between colleagues, including a lively Icebreaker Reception in Club Naimoli with live Irish music by Kennedy’s Kitchen and the Conference Banquet at the Century Center where numerous distinguished medals and awards were presented by EMI to honorees from around the world.
