Case Study: In-Situ Truss Reinforcement

There is sometimes a misconception that routine engineering projects require plug-and-play solutions. However, in our experience, even these often present situations that require creativity.

For example, one of our Automotive and Manufacturing clients is expanding an existing line. In order to expand the line, existing trusses and jack trusses require reinforcement in order to install an extension to conveyors hung from the trusses.

Our structural designers have developed an in-situ reinforcement solution in order to simplify the design and avoid removal of loads prior to reinforcement. The design also reduces the total weight of steel required to reinforce the trusses.

Where reinforcement is required for the existing truss members, the solution calls for the design a new member cross section (existing plus reinforcement) without consideration for existing member stresses. As allowed by strength design, it is assumed the new section is capable of developing the full plastic capacity of the new built up member cross section. This assumes adequate connection of the reinforcement and not decreasing the radius of gyration to less than 85% of the existing radius of gyration.

The expansion is moving forward and this solution has saved the client cost and hassle. Furthermore, while this method of reinforcement is now […]

Encouraging a safety mindset – “Be Smart/Be Safe”

“Safety Culture” has become the go-to phrase for most safety programs in today’s businesses. But at what level is a “culture” operating, and how is it maintained? At R.E. Warner & Associates, we believe that safety is not just something to be thought about during work hours, but a continuous mindset that should be part of daily life – whether inspecting a boiler furnace duct on a cold winter day or grilling steaks with family and friends on a hot summer evening.

Being smart about safety entails more than taking a test once a year and knowing the ABCs of basic safety. It is about understanding the present dangers involved in the work or activities you are about to engage in, and what tools should be available to successfully and safely complete your endeavor. We advocate for always being aware of your environment, including the actions of other people around you, and always having a plan for emergencies should something arise that puts you or others in harms’ way.

To encourage a safety mindset, our firm has 21 mandatory training courses, with another 38 additional project- and discipline-specific training programs. We work with third party qualifiers like Avetta, Gatefeed, and ISNetworld […]
