Developments among structural engineering professionals.
The International Code Council’s 2003 International Building Code (IBC) Section 1604.5 specifies the Importance Factors defined in Table 1604.5 for snow, wind, and seismic loads.
The structural engineers for the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago project opted to conduct aeroelastic testing on the building in cooperation with wind engineering consultants.
I asked a number of today’s leading structural engineers about which engineering legends they would like to meet and what question they would ask. What follows are their intriguing responses.
A combination of growth tactics is paying off for 320-person architectural, interior design, and engineering firm Cubellis (Boston), which broke into the top 20 for the first time on The Zweig Letter Hot Firm 2006 List.
In 2003, the ICC and the NSSA initiated a joint project to write a consensus standard for storm shelters. Within the next three months, the first committee draft will appear and it will be your turn to provide input.
Contractors take design drawings and turn them into buildings. How does the engineer know where the structural steel will actually be located when it is erected? Part of the answer is tolerances.
Garnering national attention and home to a steady stream of on-lookers, the Trump International Hotel and Tower is the tallest skyscraper to be built in the United States since the Sears Tower was constructed in 1973.
