Press review about Samuel Yniesta

May 8, 2018, PLAN, De Mexico à Montréal : ce que nous apprend un séisme Samuel Yniesta, professeur adjoint au Département des génies civil, géologique et des mines de Polytechnique Montréal, a fait partie de l'équipe de six chercheurs et ingénieurs envoyés à Mexico par l'Association canadienne de génie parasismique afin d'étudier les enseignements à tirer du séisme de Mexico survenu en septembre dernier (page 54).
