EULOGIO "AMANG" RODRIGUEZ INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (EARIST)
The Eulogio “Amang” Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology (EARIST) was established after the liberation of Manila in 1945. Its development from that of a vocational high school under Mr. Pantaleon Regala, its principal. EARIST growth and development were made possible via three Republic Acts and Presidential decree. This made EARIST into a full-fledged college and authorized the establishment of vocational-technical school branches in each congressional district of Manila. Presidential Decree 1524, signed by President Ferdinand E. Marcos on June 11, 1978, converted EARIST into a chartered state college with a Board of Trustees as its governing body and Dr. Hilario G. Nudas, as its first college President. It is located in Nagtahan, Sampaloc, Manila.
- RETROFITTING OF GOVERNMENT BUILDING IN PREPARATION FOR THE “BIG ONE” REGALA BUILDING AMANG RODRIGUEZ, EARIST
- Through structural assessment and detailed investigation, the overall condition of the existing structure of the building (P. Regala Building) was found to be in poor condition. In preparation for the “Big One”, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that could hit the Greater Manila, the Department of Public Works and Highway decided for the retrofitting of all structures using the following methods on structural components: the conventional method, concrete jacketing of footing, column and beam including crack repair using epoxy injection/mortar and strengthening of beam using carbon fiber sheet.
- Location: San Fernando Street, San Nicolas, Manila
- Client: DPWH North Manila District Engineering Office
- Date Started: February 09, 2021
- Date Completion: November 13, 2021
- Retrofitting/Structural Improvement of columns, beam, ad girder using Carbon Fiber Sheet (CFS) for strengthening the concrete structures externally, It is used as an external reinforcement for columns. It consists of carbon and glass fabrics that are impregnated with the quality resins to form laminate that is externally bonded to the element to be strengthened. This strengthening method reduces the need for extra anchoring works and installation, which is very time consuming and costly. Carbon Fiber Sheet (CFS) composite material to add strength, last longer and ductility to building.
