Laser scanning can greatly speed up surveying and provide far more information in design documents and AutoCAD drawings. But it takes more than having the tools to earn the benefits of this new technology.
Laser scanning has taken some major... (Read More)
A warming climate is affecting every aspect of life and the economy. It’s not just higher temperatures than we’re used to. It’s also colder temperatures, more rain, longer droughts, more powerful storms and more extreme weather events. These... (Read More)
Architecture, engineering and construction are changing rapidly due to new technologies and new challenges. Landscape architecture is changing, too. One big change that often surprises people is the adoption of “smart” digital technology into... (Read More)
Drones are transforming the architectural, engineering and construction industries. Civil engineering is one of the fastest-changing professions today, and that’s driven mostly by technological development. From 3D modeling software to laser... (Read More)
Several trends in structural engineering all involve structural steel right now. That points to the inherent strengths and utility of the material that make it a go-to solution for structural engineering challenges across the United States and... (Read More)
Every civil engineering project shares one common element: the environment. Every structure has to fit into its surroundings, whether they’re natural or built.
Structural engineering is all about how the physical laws of the universe affect the... (Read More)
Concrete is one of the most useful construction materials. It’s durable, versatile and cheap to produce. As a result, you can find concrete as a major part of just about every structural engineering project in the world.
Concrete used in... (Read More)
