|Description:||Andrei Reinhorn, Professor Emeritus, University at Buffalo, will present “Control of Inelastic Structures by Weakening and Damping” as the next guest speaker in the T.T. Soong Student Lecture Series. In his presentation, Prof. Reinhorn will discuss the concept of structural weakening, the development of weakening components, the innovation of true negative stiffness devices, the theoretical and experimental verification of the concept using simulated earthquakes in the laboratory, and the development of design procedures using active control theories.
