On December 16th, during a ceremony organized by the U.A.E chapter of the Institute of Structural Engineers (IstructE), our Technical Director Mr. Nikos Tanteles was honored for a presentation he had given to the Institute earlier in the year. The presentation was titled “Fluid Viscous Damping: Uses, Benefits and Methods of Implementation” and it aimed to transfer knowledge on the optimization of building structures using fluid viscous damping, developed originally in the aerospace and defense industries.
