Design Data at NCSEA conference in New Orleans

The Design Data team is in New Orleans this week for the National Council of Structural engineers Associations conference. 

Each year the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations holds its Annual Conference, drawing together the best in the structural engineering field. The Conference draws structural engineers, those interested in structural engineering, students and the companies providing products and services to the structural engineers.

We won’t just be there visiting with industry experts and showing off SDS/2, either. This year, our own Steve Ashton will present a session titled, “Practical Steel Connection Designs Using 2010 AISC Standard.” The session is on Friday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. so don’t miss it! Ashton will be covering effective procedures and timesaving tips for reviewing software-generated connection designs. The session will also address some common pitfalls and how to avoid them.

You can learn more about the conference on NCSEA’s website.
