Duration: 1 hour
Cost: free eSeminar
Steel and concrete structures need to be designed for strength, but the serviceability criteria of these structures is starting to govern the design as many engineers start optimizing their members and supporting foundations in a very tight market.
Learn how vibration of steel structures can become a problem and how these issues can be resolved before a structure is built. Unintended structure and foundation vibration is not just a minor nuisance, and in some cases can cause safety issues which could lead to costly repairs and project delays.
Learn how to analyze and design large model generator/pump foundations on piles to resolve vibration issues before they can cause problems.
