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: info@theengineeringpodcast.com
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: info@theengineeringpodcast.com
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: info@theengineeringpodcast.com
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: info@theengineeringpodcast.com
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.

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.

Gosh it's been a long time since we've put out an episode, but we're starting this season on a high note. Our first interview this year was with Emily Guglielmo, a principle at Martin and Martin, and a member of the ASCE 7 wind and seismic committees. We learned a ton talking with her over an hour and decided to split the episode up in to bite sized chunks. With that, enjoy part 1 of 2, and check back shortly for the next one.Also, we've started a little newsletter.

This week we talked with Ted Goldstein PE of Tubular Connections and the inventor of the Shuriken nut keeper. We all know tubes generally make for more efficient and compact column shapes, but connections can be a challenge. Luckily Ted's got us covered.

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
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
This week we chat with Blake Larsen of Larsen structural Design. Blake has done something that many of us dream of, a few try, and very few do well. That's start his very own engineering company, and grow it to be a success. If you've ever considered going out on your own, this episode is for you. Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E 
This week we have an awesome chat with awesome framers (Check em out on instagram) to answer questions live on Instagram with a group of contractors. It was a real blast sharing what we could and learning a lot about what we can do to make their job easier, and produce better structures together. We talked for two hours, so I cut it down to two parts. we hope to do it again some time (with better audio quality hopefully), so please enjoy part 1@AwesomeFramers We're trying something new this year to help keep the podcast up and running and hopefully get even better.

Welcome back to the structural engineering podcast! It's been a busy few months and we're finally getting around to editing some of the conversations we've had in that time. This episode Zach and Max discuss our take on Slab on Grade Design with added tips and tricks picked up at the World Of Concrete Convention. We hope you enjoy, and since this can be a hotly debated topic, if you disagree with anything we've brought up, we'd love to talk about it.

This weeks guest is a little different than usual. We're talking with Sarah Lazar, a very specific recruiter working for the firm LVI. Sarah recruits for forensic engineering firms and only in the Midwest, but we're not talking to Sarah because we're looking for a job. She is also passionate and knowledgeable about the field of forensics structural engineering and offered to share what she knows with us. we hope you like 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.
