New web advisory service from the Steel Alliance
The Steel Alliance, a joint venture between SCI and its French counterpart Centre Technique Industriel de la Construction Métallique (CTICM) is launching a new dedicated technical advisory web site on 30 October.
Known as the Steel Alliance e-Advisory Service, it will be available at www.steel-alliance.net
The service will operate in English and French and will be open to subscribers on a pay-as-you-go basis. For C240 subscribers will be able to ask up to six questions on any specific technical matter related to steel structures.
“This formula offers great flexibility for users, who only pay for what they need,” said Christine Roszykiewicz, Business Manager Steel Alliance.
“Engineers can directly, and in complete confidentiality, address their questions to a team of experts at SCI and CTICM, who include engineers, architects and building physicists with international auth-ority in their field.”
The target response time will be one working day and advisory topics will come under the following broad headings: Initial design concepts; Detailed design to the Eurocodes; Fire engineering; and Best practice for construction.
For a limited period, the Anglo-French alliance will be offering a free introductory offer. The service will be directly linked to other web tools dedicated to the Eurocodes such as Access-Steel – Eurocodes made easy at www.access-steel.com and SEFIE – the Eurocode discussion forum at sefie.steelbiz.org
