    Episode 48 - Performance Based Structural Fire Design

    Episode 48 - Performance Based Structural Fire Design

    We're talking with Kevin Lamalva this week of Warrington Fire all about PBSFD. If you've never heard of this, in short, its using additional strength within the structure and rigorous analysis over a "blind" application of fireproofing material. There are a number of advantages here, from potential cost savings to a more defined level of performance. Traditional fire rating is terribly outdated, and PBSFD is on it's way to becoming a competitive technique. Kevin is the Author of many design guides, references, and white papers on the topic, and is truly one of the experts in the field.

    Episode 47 - Intro to Fire

    Episode 47 - Intro to Fire

    Warning: This is not an episode we know all that much about! We talked with Kevin LaMalva who wrote the book (many of them) on performance based fire engineering. This is not that episode, that comes next. Before we get to the high level, Zach and I try to learn for ourselves what the IBC says about fire proofing, how it is applied, and what structural engineers should know.  Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E

    Episdoe 46 - Fast+Epp, a lot more than mass timber

    Fast + Epp has become world renown for innovative and beautiful design in mass timber. As a fairly small firm with 35 years of experience behind them they have managed to work on some of the most exciting and structurally creative projects you're likely to see across the US, Canada, and Europe. We talk with Ian Boyle, one of the principals of Fast + Epp about not just mass timber, but the design philosophies of Fast + Epp and much more.Enjoy Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E

    Episode 45 - Engineering Our Future

    We recently had the opportunity to chat with Luis Duque, a bridge engineer in Boulder Colorado and the host of the 'Engineering Our Future" podcast. Luis created began his podcast to share his experiences navigating the early stages of an engineering career. His episodes discuss everything from nailing a resume to managing work life balance.  Check out his podcast on any major platform, or through his website: https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/ Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E

    Episode 44 - Skinny Braces

    Episode 44 - Skinny Braces

    This week we're talking with Thor Matteson, A structural engineer in California, and the inventor of Skinny Braces. These unique braces attach a ductile fuse to an old fashioned cantilever column system to create a chimera of unmatched R value. Or really, you get to use an R=6.5, just like a wood framed shear wall. This gives you all the benefits of a cantilever column system without the huge footings and low R. The skinny brace is aptly named because it takes up a tiny amount of space compared to the competitors in the soft story retrofit space.

Thanks

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!
