Steel tubular product and HSS provider Atlas Tube, Chicago, a division of JMC Steel Group, has launched Atlas Connection, a free online forum that provides support for professionals involved in the design and specification of HSS.
By joining the site, found at www.atlasconnection.com, HSS designers and engineers can find answers to specific questions and participate in the peer-to-peer exchange of relevant product information, customer support, and supplier information via discussion threads, videos, blogs, how-to guides, and case studies. Forum members can contribute HSS design ideas, best practices, and support information while keeping up with news feeds and social media and sharing videos, images, and documents with others.
Industry experts including Dr. Jeffrey Packer from the University of Toronto; Samuel M. Rubenzer, PE, SE, for FORSE Consulting LLC; and Brad Fletcher, structural engineer at Atlas Tube lead online Q&A sessions and respond to individual questions within specific threads.
