Since the beginning of time, bridges have helped people (and their possessions) get from one place to another. An integral part of connecting populations and transporting goods, life without bridges would be quite difficult to say the least.
On Tuesday, February 24, 2015, we welcomed about 50 undergrad and graduate engineering students from area universities to our Atlas Tube plant in Chicago for our 4th annual Student Day.
As a continuing service to our clients, Atlas Tube routinely enlists the services of industry leaders in matters related to driven pipe piles. This is the second in a series of topics provided at our request by Wagner Komurka Geotechnical Group, Inc.
Designing with HSS can be a complex concept for the most experienced engineer or fabricator. In fact, it's likely that you have experienced some confusion while designing with HSS and the connections needed to maintain their structural integrity.
Here at Atlas Tube, we appreciate the finer things in life, like engineering, architecture and design. As an HSS manufacturer, we not only like to stay current with the latest in design, we also enjoy seeing HSS in different applications. From bridges and buildings to rollercoasters and stadiums, HSS can be found in structures of all shapes and sizes. The first in our new blog post series, we will be taking the time to admire different applications where HSS was used in building designs. This month, we’re going to tackle four sports stadiums, including two football stadiums, one soccer stadium and one baseball stadium (full disclosure: these stadiums have Atlas Tube products in them).
