 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'.
