Re: Definition of a Collector

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One of the big advantages of the list is definitions/ideas/issues being vetted out. I am teaching a course on Seismic Design of Structures and we talked about collectors and have found this thread of discussion useful in giving some examples.
Thank you all for the enthusiastic participation in the list
