  1. Hello everyone, I am required to analyse a building that has both steel framing for the first few floors and is then continued upwards as a concrete structure. I was able to use AISC's direct analysis method to check the deflections in the steel framing and check the members using reduced EI properties. When I get to checking concrete, the code doesn't give an explicit method on how to do something similar to that shown in AISC. My understanding is that I can use moment magnifiers or run the analysis with P-delta turned on. My goal is to analyse the entire model in one fashion, and I'm interested in finding out how to analyse the concrete structure with P-delta. 1) Would sway/non sway not matter when P-delta analysis is done? In AISC, they mention that k doesn't matter in P-delta analysis. 2) Is the iterative method to find EI applicable for concrete as well? I'm using RISA 3D to perform the analysis. I would appreciate any help as I do not have a lot of experience in dealing with concrete structures. Thanks, Vishal
  2. At work I've been tasked with running a variety of calculations on a pre-existing sand-cast aluminum pole, but I cannot for the life of me find the material properties for the alloy the manufacturer is using. It's an 356.0-F Aluminum pole, and the only information I can dig up is Yield and Tensile strength, which is certainly a start, but I need Compressive strength, shear strength, and bearing strength to complete the calculations I'm supposed to do. Does anyone have any idea where to find this information? My colleagues and I are hesitant to purchase ASTM B26, since we are not sure if it actually has the information we need. If anyone has any suggestions, or can confirm that the specification would have the relevant information, I'd greatly appreciate it!

  4. I recently failed the gravity portion of the structural exam. I believe I misunderstood as to what one portion of one of the afternoon problems was asking and thus missed a "critical" design check. However, I was wondering, does anyone have theories as to what the bread and butter of the afternoon exam is? I'm assuming that bending AND shear will be asked on each problem - thus if for some reason you didn't calculate shear on a particular problem you'd know to double check your answers on the problems? Also, in general does anyone have advice for second time takers of the exam?
  5. I am a building design engineer looking to take the SE Exam in April and the bridge questions on the exam are scaring me a little bit. I've done little to no work with bridges since starting work. I've found a bunch of review courses that contain bridge modules, but aren't explicitly geared towards bridges. Does anyone know of any courses/books/study materials that will teach AASHTO to us building guys? I know it's just for the morning breadth section, but I don't even know where to begin studying AASHTO. Thank you! -Tom
  6. I'm seeking an experienced Facade Engineer who will collaborate with architects and other building professionals to design and deliver exciting, world class buildings. Responsibilities: • Participate and actively contribute to design workshops, where cladding solutions are explored and determined. Workshops will be with architects and fellow professionals and with the cladding industry. • Free hand sketching skills are often useful in developing ideas and explaining concepts. Such sketches are often included in our tender information packages. • Producing specifications and reports, and coordinating the work of others. • Commenting on cladding industry submittals. • Witnessing testing and preparing associated technical reports. • Carrying out factory visits, site inspections and preparing associated technical reports. • Supervising and coordinating the work of other team members and coordinating work with building professionals of other disciplines. • Communicating with clients to establish their needs, and maintaining a dialogue throughout the project. • Managing project teams to ensure production of deliverables to agreed timelines and within budget. • Providing technical guidance and mentoring to junior members of the team Qualifications: • Design skills associated cladding and envelope detailing. • Experience of 3d computer modeling packages/2-D CAD is desired, but not essential. • Excellent communications skills (both written and verbal). • Minimum Bachelor's degree in Architecture or Engineering, Masters strongly preferred • Licensed Structural engineer preferred. • A minimum of 6 - 7 years of relevant experience. • US Cladding industry experience is desirable, but not essential. • Able to understand the balance of priorities on differing projects. • Able to quickly develop successful client relationships. • Ability to work under pressure and meet strict deadlines. • Planning and organizational skills.

  8. Hello all!! I hope you're having a good so far. I am a recent civil engineering grad and I would like go into the project management route, rather doing engineering calculations. Why? Because I held a part time job at a small private firm for about 3 months, I was out on the field almost almost half of the week and I loved it. I really enjoy seeing how the project comes together, perhaps even more than designing.. Just from top of my head, I have a few questions that I'd like to ask. 1. Do I need to get my masters? If so in what? Structural/MBA/Project Management? I'm not sure what I should study or if I even need to study. I feel like getting my masters would be the next step but I'm not sure in what. 2. Are you a project manager yourself? if so why did you choose project management? 3. Anything else you'd like to add =] Thank you.
