Graduated of a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Laval University (2011), a master's degree in structural and seismic engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal (2013) and holding the LEED AP BD+C’s credential (2018), Mr. Gélinas is working on various construction, rehabilitation and inspection projects as a structural engineer at WSP Canada at the Montreal’s offices. Recently, he has been actively involved in the renovation’s project of the iconic tower of the Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. Since 2013, Mr. Gélinas is also a lecturer for the CIV3503 - Design of steel structure’s course at École Polytechnique.

In Canada, the use of bolted connections are generally preferred for steel concentric X-bracing diagonals made of HSS profiles or double angles back-to-back. Experimental and numerical studies conducted at Polytechnique Montreal have shown that these connections are likely to buckle in compression and undergo a complete tensile rupture under the effect of a seismic event. The expected failure modes will be presented and discussed. Calculation methods will then be presented to predict the buckling strength of the connections in order to obtain adequate seismic behavior.
