Modern Steel Construction's Field Notes podcast! Hear from prominent, engaging people from the world of structural steel. Geoff Weisenberger hosts.
Larry Kruth has dedicated the majority of his life to the structural steel industry as a practicing engineer, a fabricator, a safety expert, an instructor, a committee volunteer, and an AISC vice president. And even though he recently retired (for the second time), his work with the industry will continue.
Lifelong Learner and Teacher
Chris Raebel's life thus far has been a fruitful and varied journey, all without having to stray from the city he loves--Milwaukee--for too long.
Ron Klemencic's habit of questioning the answers has led him to play an integral role in developing the revolutionary SpeedCore high-rise core wall system.
One of this year's Steel Design Student Competition winners and his faculty advisor discuss the iterative process of transforming a decommissioned offshore oil rig into a cultural center.
Half a Century in Steel
Grady Harvell has been a driving force in Arkansas' steel industry, as well as in bringing a structural research lab to the state's flagship university.
Remember when computers weren't ubiquitous in engineering offices? Allen Adams does. And it led him to help create design software with the ultimate goal of letting engineers be engineers.
More “Substance” Please
When getting the opportunity to speak with these steel luminaries, it would do well to get into their technical areas of interest and research with more specificity. I do not mean going over design equations, but some detail about the interview subject’s specific research highlights, reasons for pursuing what they have done, and what needs to be done in the future. Not so interested in hobbies and food likes.
