The first meeting of the spring 2016 semester for Texas A&M University’s SEAoT was on January 28th. Mr. Gabriel Shelton from Baker Engineering and Risk and Consultants, gave us a presentation on blast resistant design. Gabriel shared information about Baker & Risk’s San Antonio office and some of his engineering interest. He also talked about shelter in place buildings subject to toxic gas hazards and how to model the transport of contaminates through a building. We also enjoyed a pizza reception from Double Dave’s Pizza.
Our next meeting will be held February 11th where we will be hearing from Structural Engineers from Thornton Thomasetti located in Dallas, TX.
