Weekly Poll (12)


Researchers from the Yale School of Engineering and Applied Science announced the development of a new coating strategy for semiconductors that provides corrosion protection, improves efficiency and could even lower the cost of solar fuel production by producing solar fuels when semiconductors are illuminated. However, the illumination process is prone to corrosion and could lead to the need for frequent materials replacement. Do you believe a more sustainable form of corrosion protection, such as the one developed by Yale researchers, is adaptable on a larger scale?


Engineers from Purdue University recently created what they’re calling “the whitest paint yet.” How long until you think building and facility owners will be able to utilize the coating to cool down their buildings as intended?


Now that it’s been officially released, what is your favorite aspect about the new, independent, Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings magazine?


Last month, engineers from RMIT University announced the development of an eco-friendly, zero-cement concrete that can withstand corrosive acidic environments, commonly observed in wastewater infrastructure. How long until you think the material is commercially available?


A $100M fix was approved for San Francisco’s leaning, sinking high-rise Millennium Tower that involved drilling 52 concrete piles 30 feet into bedrock. Do you think this solution will work?

Which, if any, of the federal requests to aid in filling craft positions do you think will be the most useful?


In August, SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings announced the reestablishment of its Pittsburgh chapter, known as the SSPC Steel City Chapter. Do you believe the chapter will attract new members from Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, as well as western Maryland and other northeastern states?


D+D blogger and specification expert Bob Bailey writes that the increased use of delegated design in construction projects has sparked questions over responsibility. Have your projects incorporated delegated design?


A recent MIT study found that women training to be engineers experienced negative group dynamics, felt marginalized and were assigned less challenging tasks than their male counterparts. Have you witnessed or experience this in your field?
