Cool Castings and Green Ideas from Europe

The presentation shows some of the possibilities building with various cast steels and high-strength steels and the combination of the two. It then concentrates on recent developments in the green building area, focusing on the need to improve the life-cycle cost of structures for sustainable development. This includes innovative structural systems and products such as:

  • Steel castings for better durability
  • Steel in combination with structural glass for lateral stabilization of structures
  • A connection system for faster erection and better durability
  • Stainless steel elements for fire resistance and sustainability.

This course is based on a past NASCC session.
