Ok, we understand you may prefer listening to your favorite tunes during your daily commute. But what better way to gain inspiration on a work day or down time than to delve into fascinating conversations with leading experts in the steel design and construction industry? More than a than a year ago AISC launched its series of free monthly podcasts, “Steel Profiles,” and if you haven’t tuned in yet, you’re missing a valuable and enjoyable resource on topics relevant to what you do.
At your convenience you can listen to these discussions with your favorite steel experts, hosted by AISC staffer Margaret Matthew, and learn interesting and useful tidbits that you likely won’t hear anywhere else. For example, listen to this short excerpt by “The Father of LRFD,” Ted Galambos, P.E., Ph.D., to hear his top piece of advice to engineering students.
Intrigued? You can listen to the entire conversation and all 15 Steel Profiles podcasts at www.aisc.org/podcasts, where you’ll also find a new podcast on the first Friday of each month. The series is available for easy online streaming and downloading on AISC’s website and on iTunes (search “AISC Steel Profiles.” You can also click “subscribe” to have new episodes automatically downloaded for you for free - there may be a slight delay on new episode availability in iTunes - and if you’re using a mobile device, the “subscribe” option is not available).
The latest episode features a 30-minute interview with Lawrence A. Kloiber, P.E., consultant to LeJeune Steel Co. who also serves on the AISC Specification Committee.
