"Structural Engineering ... ... is the art and science of molding materials we do not fully understand, into shapes we cannot precisely analyze, to resist forces we cannot accurately predict, all in such a way that society at large is given no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance.

(1996), Construction Pathology in the United States, Structural Engineering International, V. 6, N. 1, February1996, p. 57-60.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
