Structural engineering podcast by Max and Zach. Join in weekly as we discuss structural engineering topics and experiences for new engineers.
Episode 61 - Mighty Buildings
In this episode we talk with Sam Ruben, the Co-founder of Mighty Buildings, a company attempting to change the way we build residential and even commercial structures through 3D printing. At the SEP we believe the future of structures should, and will, look a lot different then our current practice. (Do you know how long we've been building houses with wood!?) If I were to place a bet, I think 3D printing will be a big portion of that, and these guys have a very cool system to help us get there. mightybuildings.comWebsiteInstagramLinkedInFaceBookYouTubeEmail: email@example.com
Episode 60 - Sustainability with Holmes
This week we talk with Megan Stringer and Erik Kneer of Holmes Structures. Both Megan and Erik are committed advocates for more sustainable practices in structural design. I admittedly didn't know how much SE's could do to reduce the total carbon emissions of a building project, but I was happy to find not only do we have a role in this space, but it's truly crucial to a sustainable, low carbon future.Links:Achieving net zero embodied carbon (pdf)EPD'sSE2050.orgBuildingtransparency.org WebsiteInstagramLinkedInFaceBookYouTubeEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Episode 59 - Mass Timber in High Seismic?!
This week we talk with Ilana Danzig an associate with Aspect Structural Engineers. She brings a large knowledge of complex structures with a passion in timber. We hope you enjoy!Click here to see the connection. WebsiteInstagramLinkedInFaceBookYouTubeEmail: email@example.com
Episode 58 - I'll See You in Court
This week we hear from Sam Mcglamery, Executive VP of vertex engineering. Sam has been a structural engineer far longer than I've been alive. At this point in his career he often uses his knowledge and experience to serve as an expert witness and standard of care expert. We reached out to Sam because we wanted to know the reality behind lawsuits and engineering, how likely are they, and what actually happens. We hope you enjoy.WebsiteInstagramLinkedInFaceBookYouTubeEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Episode 57 - FRP, Bonding With Simpson
This week we talked with Aniket Borwanker, a production manager at Simpson Strong Tie. Aniket it tasked with developing and testing new uses for FRP products. FRP includes fiberglass and carbon fiber wrap used in seismic retrofit's, bridges, wall strengthening, and many other possible applications. We learn all the places you can stick this stuff, how strong it is, and some tips on designing with it. Also, we've started a little newsletter. Now I know more email is not what most people are looking for, but we're hoping you'll make an exception. Every Tuesday morning we send out a short snip highlighting the most important engineering related story of the past week, as well as a 1 minute trivia for those studying for an exam or looking to stay sharp.

Episode 56 - Present your science
This week we talked with Melissa Marshall, an expert science communicator, and probably the only TED speaker we'll ever convince to join us on the show. Melissa shares tips for communicating science and engineering terms and how to give more effective presentations.We recommend checking out her company:https://www.presentyourscience.com/and her ted talkhttps://www.ted.com/talks/melissa_marshall_talk_nerdy_to_meAlso, we've started a little newsletter.

Can’t wait to hear more!
I just started listening but have enjoyed the first few episodes! Can’t wait to hear them all, keep up the good work!
I’m currently in my senior year of undergrad, just started a structural engineering internship and seeing all the work people are doing has been very overwhelming. Listening to this podcast has really helped me stay positive and realize that I don’t have to know everything. There’s some really great information in these episodes.
As a current student in college, it’s really helpful to hear great advise and content from 2 structural engineers. Great work!
