  • Summer Research Project Tests Load-Bearing Capacities for Timber-Framing Construction
    professor of civil engineering to test the load bearing capacity of floor joists used in traditional timber framing construction The project is part of a larger effort by Mullen a timber framing expert to contribute to the knowledge base of that ancient art so information about the load bearing capability of beams can be included in modern building codes Historical precedent works but modern building code folks want proof said Mullen who s been involved with timber framing for over 15 years As an engineer we need something to hang our hats on instead of Well it s always been OK To help expand the knowledge base for types of wood commonly found in Virginia Iuliano is testing 12 foot timbers cut from four tree species white pine white oak red oak and poplar For each type of wood Iuliano is testing joists cut at three depths two inches three inches and four inches Moisture is a critical component in determining the strength of wood so Iuliano measures the moisture content of each timber by weighing a sample drying it in an oven and weighing it again afterward Historically timber frames are built with green wood so the frame is weakest when it s first assembled said Mullen Left to dry on their own added Mullen heavy timbers such as those Iuliano are testing could take up to a decade to dry completely The oven simply speeds the process he explained so moisture content can be part of Iuliano s calculations So far Iuliano has found that the wood is losing a quarter or more of its weight in the oven While the small pieces of wood are drying Iuliano tests the timbers themselves Using a jack similar to one used to lift an automobile Iuliano applies pressure to each

the associated academic work required to earn business or economic elective credits for their internships In summer 2014 six cadets with internships earned academic credit either an economics elective

retail store management trainee At least 11 Economics and Business majors will be performing summer internships in the summer of 2015 Good internships are hard to find these days although the situation is improving as both the national mood and the economy improves A major factor is competition from students at other colleges Success often depends on cadets pursuing internships opportunities with energy and imagination Utilizing the VMI alumni network is one way another is thinking outside the box by looking for opportunities in less obvious places Cadets are fortunate to have several networking opportunities open to them by the Alumni Associations and Career Services as well as inside our own department Sometimes alumni are willing to mentor cadets but this usually requires a personal relationship to happen All of these efforts in combination or singly occur each year Some of the companies who will have cadet interns this summer include Silvercrest Financial NYC Cambridge Associates Franklin Templeton in St Petersburg FL Northrup Grummond US Army War College in Carlisle PA this is not an army job Beacon Wealthcare Raleigh NC ProCapital Ltd London Canal
