Boom times at Sparrows Point steel mill
I spent this week at Steel Week, the AISC’s North American Steel Construction Conference (NASCC) in Baltimore, MD. Every year, this conference is a great opportunity to share the CloudCalc philosophy with steel professionals. Likewise, the week presents a wonderful chance to explore the highlights of the host city (as you can see from these dispatches I wrote from Nashville and Orlando in previous years).
So arriving in Baltimore, I had to check out the points of interest. (Actually, once here, I realized that I have a little history with Baltimore. My first job out of school was with Bechtel in Gaithersburg, MD…and as a young engineer I took my EIT exam — called the “Fundamentals of Engineering” exam these days — in the Baltimore Convention Center, the same building that is hosting the NASCC!) Inner Harbor, check. Fort McHenry, check. Camden Yards, check. And now Sparrows Point! Continue reading
Collaboration? Device independence/mobility? Always-up-to-date software? Licensing flexibility? Disruptive pricing? Intuitive UI? Quick startup and a short learning curve? Structural engineers are accustomed to all these benefits of cloud-based software in every aspect of their life — EXCEPT in their work! But now, CloudCalc brings these benefits to the world of structural engineering software.
If you are attending the 2018 NASCC (AISC’s Steel Conference), held April 11-13 in Baltimore, MD, we invite you to come by booth 2400 and learn how CloudCalc can help incorporate these advantages into YOUR work process, immediately. Come by our booth and you will also be entered in a drawing to win a one-year subscription to CloudCalc! Continue reading

“What am I going to do, now that I’ve designed the Super Bowl stadium? I’m going to Disney World!”
“I’m going to Disney World!” We all know that is the destination of choice for Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, but earlier this month, it also became the destination for many of the 4,000+ structural steel professionals that attended the AISC’s National Association of Steel Construction Conference (NASCC 2016 – The Steel Show) in the Orlando, FL area.
Sure there was plenty to keep structural engineers’ interest at the conference itself, including the hundreds of exhibitors, the array of technical presentations (including CloudCalc’s presentation), and last but not least, the gorgeous structural steel supporting the St. Augustine Dome of the host Gaylord Palms Resort. But I’m sure that many of the attendees made it their business to get away from the conference and indulge some fantasy at the Magic Kingdom, a few miles to the north. Continue reading

CloudCalc, Inc. would like to extend an invitation to all those who will be at the 2016 NASCC (the Steel Conference), held April 13-15 in Orlando, FL to attend our presentation. The presentation, entitled Structural Analysis in the Cloud: What’s in it for You?, will take place in the St. George 104 room of the Gaylord Palms Convention Center, from 3:00-4:00PM on Thursday, April 14.
This presentation is intended to introduce the audience to the benefits that accrue by doing structural analysis on the cloud, specifically through the use of CloudCalc, the on-line browser-based, structural engineering software which analyzes steel structures to the AISC ASD and LRFD codes. In this presentation you will see the following benefits: Continue reading
