In this issue we have gathered a sample of newly-added online papers as well as educational resources, on bridges, wind effects on structures, earthquake engineering and lots more!
There is also some new software and events (both online and offline) on Structural Engineering.
If your organization would like to reach out to thousands of structural engineers per month, contact us to learn more about our Sponsorship Packages - Do not forget to ask for our Special Summer Offers for newsletter readers only!
Until next month,
