Question Hello! I am from Philippines and on my 4th year of studying Civil Engineering. Can you suggest me some structural-related dissertation topic? Our professor rejected some of our titles because we just focused on construction and materials. She cited an example like 'An Investigation on the Relationship between the Beam and Column'. I hope you can give me some ideas. The more, the better. Thanks a lot in advance! :)
Answer Dear Guia
Please try the following subject:
Effect of oversrenghtening and /or oversizing of beams on stability of columns designed based on seismic provisions.
Please don't hesitate to ask further questions to clear the points.
I can answer questions in Structural Engineering, Earthquake Engineering, Project Management and Project Control topics!
I am experienced in the area of earthquake engineering in electrical power industry, i.e. Lifeline Earthquake Engineering. My focus has been on structural seismic design of power installations. Recently I have got involved in project management in the category of constructional engineering.
