Continuing Education

Ideas from Abroad [B15]

This session will provide an international look at what is being done in other countries. Over the last decade, the European market of steel fabrication has experienced various changes in term of standard, practice, and supply chain layout. The first presentation will include the point of view of a steel producer providing an extended offer in structural solution, giving an overview on general trends as well as some changes in the daily practice. The second presentation will provide an overview of the conceptual design, structural behavior and erection of the new vehicular crossing over the Ter River in Girona (Northeast of Spain). This design was based on an aesthetic philosophy of ""complex simplicity"", a contemporary interpretation of a classic structure type that gives a unique identity to the bridge. What are they doing in other countries? Why don't we do that here?
