RE: Steel Jacketing of RC columns

Maybe you can suggest to Mr. Ehsani when you go to this meeting that he
should have a website. Once done, maybe he should advertise it on the SEAOSC
web site. It seems like this question comes up every few months.

The person's name is Mo Ehsani and he has a fiber composite system that is
epoxied to the structural element.  He is going to give a presentation to
Tucson Chapter, SEAOA meeting next Wednesday, May 20th, noon, so if anyone
wants to get in touch with him, come to the meeting! ;-)  (Seriously, I will
get contact information from him at the meeting and post it then.  If you
can't wait, let me know and I will find out ASAP.)
