Manuel Buitrago, a member of Building Resilient, successfully defended his excellent doctoral thesis on improving the safety and efficiency of the shoring systems used in the construction of reinforced concrete buildings. The thesis also resulted in a patent for a new structural fuse (load limiter). We appreciate the valuable comments of the members of the jury: Prof. Pedro Miguel, Prof. Rigoberto Burgueño and Prof. Salvador Ivorra.
