In the 'Meet Brian' box on the site, you will read that I like astrophysics. This is where the idea for 'Engineering in a Box' originated. There is the YouTube series, 'MinutePhysics', that takes complex physics concepts and explains them in very simple ways using fun illustrations. I wanted to do the same for structural engineering.
Earlier this year, I put together a six-feature online series (released monthly) that explains and illustrates structural engineering concepts in easy-to-understand terms. Mouse over the “Engineering in a Box” on the website and it will take you to the first feature in the series: Slab on Grade.
The intent of 'Engineering in a Box' is multi-purpose. It may help an architect when thinking about a particular design. It may help a contractor think through a problem on a job site. Or, it may help a student better understand an engineering concept.
The Red Blog originates from “I Don’t Like Bananas', a story about my daughter’s lunch box and how to communicate better. For me, it’s about communication and I am always trying to improve that skill.
Most of all, BrianMoskow.com is about structural design and the business of engineering. I just like thinking about these things and if I can help make them easier to understand and communicate better in the process, that’s great.
