research as education
The Steel Centre has a goal that every student, including undergraduates, is involved in a research project. This hands-on experience coupled with outstanding education quality produces students that have a deeper, more natural understanding of steel construction. Steel Centre students work closely with partners from Alberta's leading companies to identify and solve real problems faced by the steel construction industry.
Steel structures research at the University of Alberta typically involves both large-scale testing in the I.F. Morrison Structural Engineering Laboratory, as well as computer modelling including high-fidelity applications. Steel structures research carried out at the University of Alberta has been influential in the development of design codes and standards world-wide.
If you have a challenge that needs a top team of researchers, lab equipment, and experience, consider submitting a Research Topic Proposal.
structural engineering reports
The Steel Centre produces and publishes a large number of technical reports of use to structural consultants and members of the steel industry. A full list of available structural engineering reports, including a download request form, is available on the University of Alberta website.
