Learning from Disaster: The Role of Engineers in Reversing Mounting Losses

The US is grappling with mounting losses due to climatological hazards; each of these events holds within it valuable lessons central to reversing this alarming trend, making the capture of their perishable data an urgent priority. While the potential to learn from disaster begins with the acquisition of this forensic evidence, that potential is realized only when this evidence is strategically leveraged across the vital post-disaster data to knowledge (D2K) lifecycle. This lecture will highlight the reasons why America’s approach to disaster risk reduction is challenged in today’s changing climate.

Pushing the Limits with High Strength Steel

Introduced originally in 1993, high-strength, low-alloy A913 structural steel is different from other steel on the market as it is produced using the specialty in-line Quenching and Self-Tempering (QST) process. With the development A913 steel, manufacturers succeeded in creating structural steel that combines high yield strength with excellent toughness and outstanding weldability – material properties that had historically been considered incompatible with fabrication and reduced costs. Innovation in high-strength steel has allowed structural engineers to push the limits with building design while still keeping economy on the mind. This presentation will explore some of the key parameters that make A913 high-strength steel different such as production, chemistry, yield strength and weldability as well as how it can help with efficiency and economy on a building project.

Ragon Institute 2.0

The new headquarters for the Ragon Institute, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a 307,000 GSF facility with four floors of laboratory space, including a Biosafety Level 3 (BSL3) lab and a vivarium. The new building will facilitate the Ragon Institute's mission of harnessing the immune system to prevent and cure human disease. The formal design of the building strives to maximize the available laboratory space in the upper floors, while maintaining a modest footprint at ground level to provide an appropriately human-scale interaction with the surrounding neighborhood. The practical result of bridging these two programmatic constraints is a number of cantilevers around the building, the longest of which (up to 68 feet) is accomplished by four parallel trusses within the top floor mechanical penthouse. Carefully coordinated mechanical equipment nestles between the trusses, and the upper truss chords both support an equipment platform and act as part of the dunnage for the building's chiller and generator.

Hyde Park Labs: New-Over-Existing Construction, Composite PT Slabs and Other Challenges

Hyde Park Labs is a 370,000 square foot state-of-the-art lab science building, currently under construction with expected delivery in late 2024. A portion of the new construction is being built atop existing parking and retail spaces within the 10-year-old Harper Court development, resulting in unique challenges such as how to construct a 14” thick cast-in-place amenity deck slab without any reshoring due to existing tenant requirements. The solution was to design the amenity deck as a composite post-tensioned concrete slab, poured and stressed in two stages with vertical reinforcement designed for horizontal shear transfer. This and other practical solutions to constructability challenges will be discussed.

Building Tall Sustainably – Sustainability through Material Innovation

In Chicago and around the world, concrete is the material of choice for high-rise residential construction.  It is an economical, reliable, but notoriously carbon-intensive material, primarily due to the energy demands of portland cement production.  As a result, many recent proposals in sustainable construction have replaced concrete with low-carbon materials such as mass timber.  We challenge the assumption that concrete is not part of the palette of possible solutions for sustainable construction.

Sustainable design requires teams to perform a Life Cycle Analysis which considers Embodied Carbon and Operational Carbon.  Structural systems and material choice have impacts on both embodied and operational carbon.  Building sustainably requires teams to rationally explore multiple structural systems and materials to address challenges relating to architecture, sustainability, constructability, and economics.

Art Institute of Chicago - Loggia Restoration

Almost complete section loss of triple steel I-beams that support a clay tile arch deck and portions of a stone façade at the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC) was discovered. AIC took immediate short-term actions, and WJE developed a top-side only repair where reinforced concrete beams were cast in the void space of the steel beams, creating a hybrid beam where the load is completely transferred between a concrete only and a steel only cross-section. Field exploration and mockups confirmed that the repair was constructible and laboratory testing confirmed the capacity of the unique repair design.

Austin Central Library

Aspiring to be the best daylit library in the world, the primary design goal was to leverage daylight to create a space that is bright, open and welcoming through its connection to the natural environment.  The design was also focused on providing a wide variety of user experiences, including open-air areas, an irregularly carved central atrium, and feature skylights and interior connection bridges.  Consequently, structural engineering is on display throughout the building in both obvious and subtle ways, manifesting innovation from the foundation to the roof.  Although much of the primary structure is cast-in-place concrete, the artful use of structural steel was critical to brining the architectural vision to life without compromise.

The project is certified LEED Platinum, and won an AIA COTE Top Ten Award in 2020, as well as an NCSEA Excellence in Structural Engineering Award in 2018.
