    Presented by Jonathan Tavarez, P.E.

    Averaging over 200 inquiries each week, the Steel Solutions Center can readily identify trends in the inquiries received. The Steel Solutions Center works closely with the Engineering and Research Department and the Committee on Technical Assistance to develop new Frequently Asked Questions to address these topics. These questions are published on the website each quarter, providing a valuable resource to the design and construction industry. This one-hour seminar focuses on the most commonly asked questions from this resource, including such topics as the new 2016 Specification, the new 2016 Seismic Provisions, and high-strength bolting.  

    Registration opens at 11:45am. Presentation begins promptly at 12:30pm

    For SEAoNY members, registration is $35 

    For non-members, registration is $45

    SEAoNY YMG and AWC Present:

    The Wood Evolution

    February 27, 2019

    6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    Center for Architecture | 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY 10012


    Presented By: Michelle Kam-Biron, SE, SECB

    Join SEAoNY for a special presentation by Michelle Kam-Biron of AWC: "The Wood Evolution: Innovative Structural Systems and Related Codes and Standards." Please bring a business card to be entered into a raffle to win a hard copy of the 2018 NDS suiteRecap and Rewind to Follow!

    As a structural building component, wood offers many environmental benefits, including the ability to maximize carbon storage and minimize carbon dioxide emissions associated with the design, construction and operation of buildings. Designers in Europe have been using “mass timber” structure design principles and techniques for over 15 years, to take advantage of wood’s carbon benefits, driving positive change through the power of wood design. In 2018, 14 code changes for mass timber construction was submitted for the 2021 IBC to allow larger mass timbers buildings and in December, all code changes were approved leading the way to expand the use of mass timber in the U.S. This presentation will connect structure with architecture by introducing a variety of innovative structural wood products and systems as well as the related codes and standards. Case study examples of innovative projects in Canada, the US and Europe will be used to illustrate how you can apply these products and systems to your future building designs. These creative and imaginative structures are designed to take advantage of wood’s environmental and structural benefits and will inspire you to blend structure back into architecture using massive timber and other wood systems.

    Presenter Bio:

    Michelle Kam-Biron, SE, SECB is a California licensed structural engineer and Senior Director of Education for the American Wood Council (AWC) where she oversees AWC continuing education resources for building industry professionals as well as coordinates the development of university level wood design course.

    SEAoNY March Seminar

    AI in Structural Engineering

    March 19, 2019

    6:15 PM - 8:00 PM

    Center for Architecture | 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY 10012


    Presented By: Robert K. Otani, PE, Chief Technology Officer, Thornton Tomasetti

    Structural engineering is a very old craft and profession and although there have been software advances for analysis and design as well as the advent of Building Information Modeling in the last 15-20 years, the engineering processes have not changed. However, the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) will greatly disrupt the conventional engineering practice within the next 10-15 years. We believe that up to 40% of structural engineering can be automated using Artificial Intelligence and many other processes involved with the business of engineering like project management, accounting, and marketing will be at least be augmented by Artificial Intelligence.

    In designing structures, there are many mundane and repetitive tasks that engineers are essentially overqualified for. AI can automate those tasks. This allows engineers to spend their time being creative and solving problems. AI can also automate QA/QC since it can find outlier patterns.

    Our team has been researching AI and Machine Learning since 2015 and have developed working applications that leverage AI. One application called Asterisk is an optioneering web-based software (alpha stage) that can design a building structure (gravity, lateral, and foundation system) in under one minute and therefore multiple options of column spacing, loading, materiality, and facade systems can be computed to optimize for the most suitable design for the client.

    The presentation would include a short history of artificial intelligence as well as an introduction to “Asterisk” as well as discussion of potential future uses of AI in structural engineering and construction processes.
