American Institute of Steel Construction: AISC has created a new resource for learning about the process of steel design and construction: Digital Case Studies. These case studies provide detailed information, including photographs and project schedules. In addition, there are several movies and animated sequences that show the production, detailing, fabrication, and erection of structural steel (the movies are reproduced from the AISC Detailer Training Series). All of the information can be downloaded and can be freely used for educational purposes.

British Steel: Photographs and case studies: These thumbnails show the wide range of structures which can be built in steel.

British Steel Construction Manual On-Line: This manual has been compiled by British Steel in association with the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) and the British Constructional Steelwork association (BCSA). The aim of the Manual is to provide the designer and users of steel with information that is required frequently. The information contained is presented in electronic format to enhance users access to this knowledge. Some of the data is presented in a manner which allows the user to tailor the information that is presented.

Figure 1: View of the bridge pier, currently under construction, that is currently floating near the coast. Access to the pier is through the ship illustrated in the figure. The ship is modified to allow transportation of the reinforcements using trucks. 

 

Figure 2: Another pier of the bridge. 

Figure 3: Reinforcement placement in the pier, according to the design. The reinforcement has previously being transported with a truck next to the pier. 

Figure 4: Interior of the pier of Figure 6. The thickness of the reinforced wall is approximately 2.0m.

Figure 5: Interior of the pier. Detail of the pier wall.

Figure 6: View of the piers that are under construction close to the coasts. The right one is the one illustrated in Figure 4 and 5.

Figure 7: View of a pier that has currently touched the bottom of the sea.

Machine used to automate the shaping of the reinforcements in the shape required by the design. 


Machine used to automate the shaping of the reinforcements in the shape required by the design. Used for steel rods of smaller diameter. The user has specified the geometric characteristics of the steel rod. On the left you can see the steel rod which is inserted in the machine to be shaped.
 

Steel rods to be used in the above machines. A label with the barcode described the technical characteristics of the reinforcement that are going to be used to.
