Gather round friends. Lets pat ourselves on the back for designing and building a better world.
Name P. Redacted
This is the domestic engineering thread, right?
No that in the war room
yes hello i like trains
Hello at the show. Got my biggest project just beginning construction now.
How much is TIC?
What discipline r u
Generally speaking of course they are made of steel, right?
Yesterday we had a technician show up without the appropriate cable to complete a quick relay reprogramming.
Luckily there was a spare in the trash can.
Structural engineer. This project is one story of concrete and 2 more story's of wood on top of that about 92,000 sqft. There are two 4ft diameter pipes running underground at a diagonal through the site. Huge pain in the ass project.
Yesterday my staff assistant insisted that she was the person who should be on the phone with IT and she would program my new desk phone.
This consisted of navigating through the phone's menus and setting up static IPs and network info.
My fucking face when that is literally my job and she thinks she is better qualified to do it.
Then she started touching shit in my cube in between phone reboots.
MFW people actually replied
Hi my name is Kenny Powers and I perform awesome finite element simulations and create god tier scripts.
hello at the show,
engineer by degree title... poser by actual engineering done
Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content)
Slightly jealous of anyone that doesn't have to do actual engineering. No liability.
Mechanical in nuclear power here.
Only liable if you have a stamp
Don't work for Siemens do you?
Truth and my stamp is getting worn out this year.
dudeEMAW. Show us your big engineer dick
will take a better picture, but sometimes I wear the hat.... team trains.
Not toys, working scale models damn it.
Hi. I'm not an engineer but I work with them.
Engineering degree but currently working in corporate real estate construction management
Power and Controls engineer in oil and gas reporting in
Eng degree here, construction management by trade, but mostly all I do is just drive around in a truck and play on TMB
Chemical for 10 years. Will likely be moving to business by the end of the year. I've already solved everything on this side of the company.
This is why I said screw engineering and switched straight to construction management. That and thermo.
Electrical engineer checking in.
Recently switched from industrial consulting to commercial MEP work. The work is much less challenging, but also much faster paced so I don't tmb as much anymore :/
Working towards project management and less design work.
Interesting. What software do you use?
Industrial Engineer by degree with a PE license checking in.
Did MEP for a year. Hated my fuckin life.
Didn't know we had this many Indians and Asians on the board. BOOM!
That looks like our engineering department on casual Friday. There's only one white person and he's an old dude that has a pocket protector and wears diebetic shoes.
Yeah my entire department is affluent white people from the Midwest. We're all 30 or under.
We develop it in house. Well we develop a few in house, but the one I use primarily is a structural solver probably most similar to LS Dyna in terms of commercial software except much more scalable. Our problems range in the 10-30 million element range whereas Dyna couldn't handle that. Our other software is a CFD solver that I know nothing about.
I think the actual engineering division shipped the weird ones to our office. Their main office is in Tulsa and they have another one down the road from us. Pretty sure they house the oddballs here. They're like an office wide joke when it comes to food. If a vendor brings food for us and one of them sees it they alert the others (telepathically I assume) and the others come and attack it like hyenas. We had an Oil & Gas division pot luck for thanksgiving. They aren't in our division but I guess sniffed it out and ravaged it. They were double plating. Almost all of them. Everyone brought enough food for oil & gas employees buy they raped it so bad that they ran out of food before a vast majority of the employees who brought food didn't get any of it. I need to just make a shitty work story thread because I'm surrounded by so many weirdos.
I work mostly with Discrete Event Simulation. I haven't used any of the software you mentioned. The applications though sound very interesting from what I just looked up.
EE here. Nice to see some colleagues on the board.
Another EE checking in.
Mechanical here. Actually in the airport about to head to Houston for a site visit for this abortion of a project.
These Military projects got me feeling some type of way though.
Civil by degree but working in nuclear power. Taking my PE next spring when my schedule gets less hectic.
systems engineer in IT...does that count?
We are the same.
Lots in nuclear power here.
I am a "Software Engineer" does that count?
Separate names with a comma.
