Stainless Steel Manufacturing Plant Tour

A tour of the North American Stainless steel mill in Ghent, Kentucky will take place on April 19, 2016.  The steel mill is the largest in the country.  The tour will provide an inside look into how stainless steel is created.  The tour will include stops at the melt shop where scrap metal is melted down, the long-product hot mill where billets are formed, and the flat-product hot mill where plates are formed.  The temperature within the mill sits at about 100 degrees.

The steel mill tour will be free of charge.  For the tour, we will meet and carpool to the plant for the tour. The plant is located 2 hours south of Dayton.
We are still finalizing the details on departure time and return time for the tour.  If you are interested in the tour, please RSVP so we can finalize details with the plant.

Speaker: Jim Sanneman, Tensar Corp

With the present-day issues associated with infrastructure and private development funding, there exists a need to explore innovative methods for designing civil engineering applications including paved and unpaved roads. Geogrid reinforcement is a well-established solution for challenges associated with the construction of roads, particularly over soft soils. However, their consideration as a conventional means to design a flexible pavement has been somewhat limited due to lack of full-scale evidence and relatively simplistic empirical design approaches. With the advent of mechanistic-empirical design methods for pavements, Tensar® devoted significant resources to understanding how their systems perform in full-scale such that design theory could be validated and translated into usable tools for the civil engineering public. This presentation will provide a better understanding to practicing pavement engineers of the design of paved and unpaved roadways using Tensar’s TriAx® Geogrid and the design software to utilize this technology.

Here is the powerpoint presentation given: tensar presentation

The Dayton ASCE chapter will once again be participating in TechFest at Sinclair Community College. TechFest is a 2-day STEM outreach event to expose children of all ages to science and math outside of the classroom. ASCE will be hosting a booth in which children can participate in hands-on demonstrations of civil engineering concepts.

We are seeking volunteers in two hour increments to lead a fun and easy demonstration (gum drop dome) and share their experiences in civil engineering with the students. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Amy Moore (amoore@LJBinc.com ). No prior experience is necessary.

Wondering about wetlands? Confused about cattails? Scared about swamps? Misguided about muck? Then this presentation is for you! Come join Joe Di Misa – Woolpert’s very own Professional Wetland Scientist – for this informative lunchtime presentation. Learn about what wetlands are, why they are important, and permitting approaches (including ways to streamline the permit process!)
Mr. Di Misa is a Professional Wetland Scientist and environmental consultant with Woolpert in Dayton, Ohio. He specializes in environmental design and planning for roadways, bridges, airports, bikeways, parks, military installations, and commercial/institutional land developments. His greatest strength is interpreting complex scientific and regulatory subjects between scientists and lay-persons. Joe holds a BS and MA in Geography and Environmental Planning from Towson State University. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Society for Ecological Restoration and Society of American Military Engineers. Outside of work, he is a volunteer naturalist, Eagle Scout mentor, and amateur mountain bike racer (in the old bikers die hard class).

Holiday Party Sponsors

Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline. Civil engineers design, construct, supervise, operate and maintain large construction projects and systems, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment. Civil engineering is an exciting profession because at the end of the day you can see the results of your work, whether this is a completed bridge, a high-rise building or a road. Are you interested in structural engineering, geotechnical, construction, transportation, environmental or survey? Want to hear from all backgrounds of civil engineering professionals?

Please join us to discuss these career paths with professional civil engineers from a wide variety of backgrounds.
