dc.descriptionThis article deals with channel connections in steel and concrete composite structures, with the main objective of obtaining a new formulation to determine the resistance of this widely used type of connection in the American region. Data from channel connections tests are collected from reliable experimental and numerical sources, and a valid database is created to make predictions by means of different combinations of artificial intelligence techniques, to obtain the most effective cases. Finally, a new formulation is proposed to calculate the resistance of channel connections in solid slab, applying statistical techniques to a database that incorporates experimental, numerical and artificial intelligence results, demonstrating its superiority with respect to the existing formulations in the international literature, by means of statistical measures appropriately applied to the studied case. The proposed methodology is novel and effective, and it can be expanded to other types of structural elements.  Keywords: composite structures, connections, resistance, prediction. en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017)
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
