He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart, with skillful hands he led them (Psalms 78:70-72).

  • 2016 KIBSE conference

     The 2016 conference of the Korean Institute of Bridge and Structural Engineers was held at Mok-po National University on October 10th-11th, 2016. Professor Kim attended session one, in which Professor Sim of Chung-Ang University made a presentation entitled "Inspection and Mechanical Characteristics of Corroded Prestressing Steels" (Sim and Kim et al.).

     Uniquely, there was a 'Young Engineer Session' aimed at encouraging researchers of Ph.Ds, or Ph.D-course students of 33 years or younger at this year's conference. Ph.D course student Sun-Joong Kim of our laboratory participated as one of the speakers, presenting "Stabilization of Identified Damping from Ambient Vibration Test by Amplitude-Modulating Function". And, to our great joy, he won 1st prize in the contest.

     There was also a poster session in which master's course students Kil-Ho Choi, Seok-Hee Bong, Lee-Sak An, and Jin-Hyung Lee participated.

    Kil-Ho Choi and Seong-Yeol Baek, "Combined Use of Active Turbulence Generator for Simulating Large-Scale Vertical and Longitudinal Wind Velocity Fluctuations".

    Seok-Hee Bong, "Residual Life Estimation of Pitting-Corroded External Tendon".

    Lee-Sak An, "New Introduction of Cable Part in Korea Highway Bridge Construction Specification"

    Jin-Hyung Lee, "Dynamic Effect of Water Tank on a Cable-Supported Bridge".

     On the 2nd day of the conference, there was a field trip to 'sae-cheon-nyeon bridge' in Mok-po. We visited two construction fields where different construction companies are under construction currently. The first field, a three-pylon suspension bridge(length : 3640m), was being constructed by 'Daelim'. And, the second field, a cable-stayed bridge(length : 3584m) was being constructed by 'Daewoo E&C'.
