SEAoNY Presents... Structure Quest
November 8th, 11:00am‐6:00pm
41 Cooper Square (Rose Auditorium)
RSVP directly to seaonyeducation@gmail.com by November 1st
Companies are encouraged to register as teams of 4‐6 people
Students: FREE
Members: $10 at the door (Cash Only)
Non‐Members: $20 at the door (Cash Only)

Structure Quest 2014 is finally upon us! Test your Engineering and NYC structures knowledge through this Structural Scavenger Hunt. Teams will be given a series of clues and will scour the city for 4 hours answering questions and taking photos of famous and sometimes obscure structures. The clues in this challenge vary greatly in difficulty, but they are all meant to be answered by finding information that is hiding in plain sight. Youll need to use all your powers of observation and a little background knowledge in engineering to answer every clue. To keep within the spirit of the competition, teams are to limit the use of the Internet to navigational tools only.

The event will begin and end at the Rose Auditorium at 41 Cooper Square. At the end of the 4 hour quest, scores will be tallied, refreshments will be served and a new Structure Quest Champion will be crowned!

Structural engineering companies are encouraged to sign up in teams of 4‐6 people. In an effort to expose Metro Area students to practicing engineers, the students will be placed with different company teams.
11.18.14: High-Rise Damper Technology

Taller buildings, longer bridges and other daring structures have pushed the envelope of what is possible within conventional structural design practice. Efficient design through the use of advanced computer software, and the availability of high strength construction materials allow structural engineers to deliver on these new demands. However, it does pose some challenges, principally occupant comfort and excessive lateral drift.

This presentation outlines the importance of damping, both intrinsic to the structural materials and as contributed by a supplementary system, in achieving a high-performing structure. Although there is rich experience in understanding and implementing the damping mitigation strategies for low-rise structures in (especially) highly seismic locales, this seminar will go into some detail regarding more recent experience in damping high-rise structures where wind response becomes significant.

This lecture will be presented by Jon Galsworthy, RWDI. Jon Galsworthy is a Principal and General Manager of RWDIs Loads & Effects sector and is the firms Global Leader of Wind Engineering. Jon joined RWDI in 2009 as a Project Director and in 2010, became a Principal. He oversees RWDIs UK and China operations and holds the position of Chairman of RWDIs Finance Committee. He is a recognized expert with contributions to the understanding of the response of tall buildings and towers to wind action. Over his career, he has been the director or principal engineer for wind engineering studies of hundreds of structures including buildings, chimneys and stadia over four continents.

This event is sponsored by RWDI and will take place at the Center for Architecture 536 LaGuardia Pl, New York, NY 10012

Registration opens at 5:45pm. Seminar begins promptly at 6:15pm
