The protection of civil liberties and human rights is increasingly important in our ever-changing and interconnected world. A government's duty is to protect the rights of all its citizens and to ensure that, regardless of race, gender, or any other marginalized group, everyone is able to access the same opportunities and protection of their rights. It has become increasingly clear that governments must take active steps to ensure that civil liberties and human rights are respected and protected, as any violation of these rights can have significant implications for a society's overall well-being and safety.

Structural Engineering and influence of water
Several terms are used in academia for the services provided by Government institutions and departments in urban and rural areas at national, provincial/state or local/district levels.
These terms include public services, civil services, urban services, local services, and municipal services. Is there any overlap among services or clearly divided?
- Concrete is the heart of civil engineers, as it plays a crucial role in binding materials properly. Nowadays construction costs are very high due to the scarcity or unavailability of natural resources. This problem can be resolved by the replacement of concrete with a different material that is not conventional in terms of required properties. From previous scientists' research, cement, sand, and metal are replaced by using different artiﬁcial materials.
- I wonder what other new materials can as binding to reduce cement or concrete?
I am currently a 3rd year Civil Engineering Undergraduate. I have a particular interest in the Geotechnical discipline, which I have come to learn that a good base of report writing skills are needed to convey your designs. Not to mention the various types of reports which I would needed to become familiar with.
Would anyone have any text books or courses they would recommend to improve my grammatical and writing skills, perhaps specifically catered towards Civil/Geotechnical Engineering Reports? I am taking this opportunity to prepare for both my thesis project next year and my future career.
Thank you everyone for your help in advance. Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Please see this link for an article that serves as a starting point for this discussion initiated by an ASCE task force:
In order to do my thesis, I need to place the damper I developed at OpenSees on several asymmetric steel benchmarks. For this purpose, to develop asymmetric one- and nine-story structures, I decided to use the method given in the above article, but unfortunately in the article, the structures are parametric and I do not realize this.
Here are some basic questions for me.
One, how the mass and structural members of these structures are defined and modeled.
Second, how can a find period for these structures?
And finally, how is it possible to get the response of these structures under the earthquake record?
My strongest guess is that it is to define stiffness of each structural member as a coefficient of mass or vice versa.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Take refuge in the right.
Assuming we have a piece of timber C16 - 100x100x1000mm and we apply UDL + a point load at middle point on it (parallel to the fibre) as shown below, how much will the timber compress between the force and the concrete surface ?
I have attached a sketch as well. Please see below.

hello everyone, i'm trying to model a 3D one story buiding with mass IIrregularity, the model has 4 elastic columns and rigid diaphragm. the model has no beam, so i used rigid diaphragm to equal dof of top nodes of columns. i use a model from a reasercher's article, he note that the modal frequences of first three mode is 1.16 , 1.96 , 2.37 HZ respectively. i builded the model in etabs and can verify my model with 0.33% error, but i couldn't verify model in opensees. i trying almost everythings to verify it but Unfortunately all my work was unsuccsesfull. in my reaserch i found that mass moment of inertia is principle parameter in model with mass IIrregularity, so i try figure out how modal analysis run in etabs and opensees and what difference between them. i found that etabs centeralized all masses in center of mass and then make mass matrix with 3 parameters like that [mass in x direction 0 0 0 mass in y direction 0 0 0 mass moment of inertia about hight axis ] but i wondering opensees generate mass matix for each node(also we can use center of mass for assigne mass) and also mass matrix for 6 dof model with 3 limited dofs (dofs limited in z direction and rotation about x ,y axis) is 6*6, so i'm confused to understad how opensees derrive mass matix and calculate modal frequences. i try both assigning mass to nodes and center of mass. in first condition i assigned mass moment of inertia like that mass n "mass in x direction" "mass in y direction" 0. 0. 0. "mass moment of inertia about height axis" etabs calculate mass moment of inertia with multiple each mass of nodes by distance of node from center of mass then sum these valus and attain mass moment of inertia abuot height axis. also we can use another formula for it. i try all patterns i found but i can't verify my model because i can't understand how opensees run modal analysis and make eigen values. for best understanding i upload my model in opensees and etabs. I'm so thankful if you can help me. with best regard

Hi, I'm new to the engineering field and currently in 1st semester(civil engineering). I would be happy if you point out some of the topics in the Engineering research field, so that I could also start to do some research on them.
Hello! I have an exercise to do and I am struggling with it for a week ago. I have a 2D flow with the initial velocity at the inlet=0.01m/s. And I want to calculate the numerical results of the velocity which is the function of x and y direction (U(x,y)) in the domain of the water flow. For example if I want to calculate the velocity at the distance x1 and x2 (as in the figure) in the function of x and y., how can I calculate it? Please note that it is incompressible flow. It is fully developed after it passed the entrance length. The height of the domain is 0.02 m and the length is 1 m. Please help me! You can see the following figure. Thank You in advance! I will appreciate your help !
Civil engineers around the world design using two different mechanisms of cooperation of concrete and steel. They use the mechanism of relevance and the mechanism of pretension. These mechanisms aim to achieve the cooperation of concrete and steel materials and to join the structural elements together, in order to receive the forces of the buildings which come from the static loads and from the seismic loads. After long-term research worldwide, satisfactory regulations have been established to achieve the best response of the structure to seismic shifts. They joined the base with the wall, the pillar with the beam, the beam with the slab, in order to work together creating the load-bearing structure of the construction. But they forgot something very basic that changes everything. They forgot to join the construction with the foundation ground. Constructions today are simply based on the ground and constitute a separate body unconnected to the ground of the planet Earth. As a result, their entire dynamic structure changes in terms of their behavior in the lateral forces caused by earthquakes and crosswinds. Whatever object we join by screwing it to the earth, it ceases to be independent and becomes one and the same with the earth. If you kick a ball you will score a goal. If you screw the ball to the ground and kick it you will be in pain. If we screw the structures with the ground we will hurt the earthquake a lot.

Although the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) methods can be considered relatively well-developed, it seems they have not yet become a standard for civil structures. do you know any valid guidelines or something like that in this field?
As many of the numerical researchers, especially in the fields of civil and rock engineering, may have noticed. Among different branches of micro-modeling techniques, two approaches use finite and discrete elements simultaneously. One is known as Discontinuous Finite elements, and the other introduced by Munjiza et al, known as Hybrid Finite-Discrete Elements. While Going through the literature, I have noticed that the only distinction between the two methods may be the fact that Discontinuous-FEM has an implicit integration scheme; however, the Hybrid Discrete-Finite method uses an explicit one. Surprisingly, among the extensive amount of papers in this field, some researchers have used one of these names while they are using the opposite integration method. So what is truly the difference? are they literally the same and just called with different names??
Aviation Industry is growing very fast for the last two decades. Despite the Covi-19 pandemic, the demand for new civil aircraft and military aircraft is not reduced.

Due to limited data, spatial non-uniformity of soil has been long recognized by civil engineering communtiy. A complete study focusing on the random field of soil properties should have been conducted. However, due to my limited knowledge, many stduy (mostly focusing on ground borne vibration) still consider soil to be homogenerous. Or in some other work, soil properties were assumed to follow a nature or log nature distributaion.
So, is there a consens in the field about the random soil properties? What kind of distribution is more realistic? Also, is there a way we can model its random field quickly? Say, through a few boring tests?

The case fatality rate is the ratio between number of deaths from a certain disease and total number of people diagnosed with the disease in question. In Italy, the COVID-19 CFR is now approximately 0.1 (see JHU data). According to what recently confirmed by A. Borrelli (executive of the Civil Protection Department) during one of the daily press conferences, the denominator of the above-mentioned ratio must by multiplied AT LEAST by 10 (by now, it’s rather clear how the number of total confirmed cases has been enormously underestimated). Consequently, the CFR already becomes equal to 0.01 (at the most). Borrelli has also manifestly declared that, in estimating the number of deaths, no distinction is currently carried out between patients died WITH COVID-19 (patients who simply tested positive, perhaps even post mortem) and patients who died OF COVID-19. As a consequence, since the number of deaths is still estimated by following the criterion just expounded, even the denominator could soon undergo a reduction. The question is: in your opinion, if the corrections should entail a COVID-19 CFR comparable to the one of a seasonal flu, what should we infer? Could the current Italian (and global) scenario be regarded as compatible with such a value?
The civil industry was already facing lean time mainly due to the new RERA Act. The biggest blow was the demonetization. People used to invest the black money in the Construction Industry. The flow of money stopped. Many people lost their job as the Industry started sinking followed by strict RERA Regulations. Now the builder cannot cheat. The law is good but the government must have anticipated this. Now COVID 19 Pandemic has come as the last nail in the coffin.
How to the experts feel please enlighten on the issue.
