Every month, Atlas Tube’s senior structural engineer, Brad Fletcher, interviews industry experts to help make meaningful connections in the HSS, steel and engineering communities.
In our 2nd podcast this month, Brad speaks with Michael Gray, vice president of CastConneX, at the annual conference for the Structural Engineers Association of Utah. They discuss why he chose structural engineering as a career, how he got his start with CastConneX, and the research grants, fellowships and continuing-education opportunities available through the Education and Research Council for the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction.
This month’s podcast features a discussion with Kim Olson, structural engineer with the Steel Tube Institute (STI) and FORSE Consulting. Kim shares her thoughts on the misinformation of the cost of HSS in the marketplace, her passion for educating on connections, and the tools and resources she’s helped create through STI.
In this month’s 2nd podcast, Brad speaks with Tim Gilbert, a structural engineer at TimkenSteel, about his involvement with the SEA and the NCSEA, engagement from the student chapters, and the challenges faced in structural engineering for industrial markets.
In this month’s Tubular Connections podcast, Brad speaks with SidePlate’s eastern regional business manager, Jason Hoover, about his involvement with the SEA and student engagement, as well as the benefits of using HSS in seismic applications.
