Megan Seebeck Presents to State Bar of Wisconsin

Megan Seebeck , Staff Engineer at AEI Corporation, was honored to present to the Wisconsin State Bars’ Construction Section on April 27, 2022. The presentation, “Rising from the Rubble,” focused on current speculative causes of the building collapse in Miami. A brief introduction into the basics and history of reinforced concrete was provided to help evaluate the potential causes of failure from a materials perspective. Topics covered included a historical analysis of the passage of the National Construction Safety Team (NCST) Act and the outcome of NIST’s investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Centers, and predictions on how the Surfside Building Collapse investigation will shape the future of structural materials.
