Not all superheroes wear capes but with this holiday season filled with compassion and giving from the heart, our heroes wear hard hats and steel-toed boots.
ERW Pipe Piles are very versatile in the Deep Foundations Industry. One point that makes them diverse is the various attachments that can be applied at the end of the pile so they are better suited for different soil conditions. Over the next few months, we will be exploring the various components that can be attached to the end of a pile to increase their usefulness. The first in our series we will look into is conical points.
HSS truly opens up the possibilities for architecturally exposed structural steel, allowing architects and structural engineers to meet the challenges of modern architecture and design the type of structures that break new aesthetic ground and enrich the public landscape. But it can also have everyday uses that are all around us – if you know where to look! In our continuing photo blog series, let’s take a look at more places where we discovered HSS in the Wild.
As I talk to my colleagues around the country, I’m always asked about what makes an ASTM A1085 or A500 Grade C HSS round better than the ASTM A53 pipe the local fabricator is offering. Since A1085 and A500 Grade C are both structural specifications, round HSS products are produced to be used in structural applications and general construction use. An A53 pipe size tube on the other hand is produced to allow the proper flow of oil, water or gas and is not intended to be used in structural applications. Let’s break down the top five reasons to specify A1085 or A500 Grade C round HSS on your next project instead of A53 Pipe.
Last week, Atlas Pipe Piles attended the 41st Annual DFI Conference on Deep Foundations from October 12-15 in New York City. With over 800 in attendance, this year’s conference was the biggest yet! It offered a variety of technical sessions for individuals to earn PDH credits and learn about the latest findings and practices from deep foundation experts across the country.
