Alan’s dynamic program is built around the two years of planning and two months of climbing that culminated in his world-record expedition to the summit of Mount Everest with three members of his immediate family. Incorporated throughout are practical and actionable strategies for engineers to help re-establish momentum and inspire a mindset of continuous improvement. Alan puts specific emphasis on adopting an agile mentality so that we are not too rigid in our thinking, managing and mitigating risk, building relationships, resolving conflicts, managing unpredictable events, adapting to change and effectively working together to achieve strategic goals. His message is about the passion, commitment and resilience that are needed to reach new heights in all that we do as well as the strategies and tools that allow effective leaders and committed teams to achieve breakthrough performance.

Wednesday Nov 03, 2021 @  01:30:PM  —  03:00:PM MDT

Access to clean, safe drinking water is critical for good personal health. The Center for Disease Control estimates nearly 800 million people in the world lack access to an improved water source. Each day nearly 1,000 children worldwide die due to preventable water and sanitation related diarrhea diseases. Many communities in Guatemala lack an improved water source. For the past 10 years, Rotary Clubs in western Montana have worked with several Guatemalan communities to successfully design, construct, and operate water systems. Not unlike the United States, significant effort is required to plan, design, educate, and raise funds to ensure a water system is sustainable. This effort is best shared with several organizations and the active participation of the community. This is why the Rotary Clubs have fostered long term relationships both personal and professional with several organizations including Engineers without Borders, FundAzucar, Rotary Club of Mazatenango, a Guatemalan engineer, other Rotary clubs, and the individual communities. This presentation will review three water projects in Guatemala and how the following key tasks provide the best chance for project success: needs assessment, local community involvement/responsibilities, education, training, design (local knowledge), construction, and monitoring. One of the projects will bring clean, safe drinking water to over 1,400 people.

Attendees will learn about opportunities available to share their expertise with the world to improve the lives of others.

Expanding Structural Polymers (ESP’s or polyurethanes) have been used for decades to lift settled areas that have affected pavements, structures, culverts, light poles and electronic message signs. With concrete pavement, anchors and foundations the elevation repair accuracy has been + two (2) millimeters, but the results with asphalt pavements has not been as accurate. A new technique using ESP’s has improved the accuracy of lifting asphalt pavements to a desired uniform (smooth profile grade) elevation. The new technique utilizes the same measurement instrumentation but adds multiple/simultaneous injection points and various polymers selected for their speed and predictability of their reactions in different soils, temperatures and pressure situations. The methodology of this application was developed by an experienced polyurethane technician and successfully demonstrated on a settled area of the Northwest Parkway in Denver, Colorado on a DOT project.

Xylem is a site-specific, commissioned outdoor visitor pavilion on the 12,000-acre Tippet Rise Arts Center, a one-of-a-kind destination for the public to view large-scale sculptures set in the vast Montana landscape and a unique place to attend seasonal performance art events. The Xylem pavilion is 70 feet in diameter and serves as a communal gathering place during the dry season (October to May). 40,000 linear feet of untreated ponderosa and lodgepole pine logs were used to build the installation, which resembles the traditional community huts called togunas of the Drogon tribe of Mali and Burkina Faso (the latter being the home country of the design architect, Francis Kere). The visitor's experience at the pavilion becomes a natural connection to the immense landscape and visual relation to West Africa. Visitors can immerse themselves in filtered light created by the vertically bundled wood which forms the artistically crafted roof canopy. Since the logs are not finished, the wood will naturally gray over time to add to the installation's aesthetic. The term "xylem" refers to the vascular system of plants. In a symbolic and organic way, the cathedral-like surroundings generate an elevated biophilia experience for respite and renewal. The benches were also formed from the wood bundles.

DCI Engineers was the structural engineer of record for Xylem and helped the architects and general contractor accomplish the honeycomb layout of the wood bundles (weighing about 5,000 to 7,500-lbs each). 31 full bundles were used in the installation, plus partial bundles. Since each steel hexagon of the roof grid varied in size, different amounts of logs filled each hexagon (34 full hexagons and some triangle-shaped configurations). The engineers determined how to fasten the individual logs together, as well as the bundles together. The team calculated the transfer roof loads (self-weight, snow loads, and lateral loads), designed the steel frame superstructure, and determined fastening points and screw connections. They also recommended construction sequencing for installing the wood bundles in the steel grid from the center first, then gradually spiraling outward toward the edges. The entire project took about 6 to 7 months to construct.

Over recent years, dramatic energy savings have been realized by converting legacy light sources to efficient LED technology, saving an average of 30% to 50% in energy use depending on incumbent source. However, additional kW savings are still needed by customers to save costs, and by utilities to offset power demands of population growth and industry needs. Meanwhile the chorus of voices for increased data and importance of focusing on people are louder than ever. Current lighting control systems offer granular controllability and networkability made possible by LED technology, providing the answer for buildings of the future.

Luminaire Level Lighting Control (LLLC), a capability of Networked Lighting Control systems (NLC), utilizes networkable, individually addressable sensors that are factory installed into each luminaire. 

This session will review the why of LLLC – the capabilities, system types, the energy and non-energy benefits, and the many advantages for the designer, installer and user/owner of the building. A hands-on opportunity to touch and configure a LLLC system will complete the learning.

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify, manage and purposefully express our own emotions as well understand and respond appropriately to the emotions of others. This is a crucial capacity to develop for engineers as it plays such a critical role in motivating others, problem solving, resolving conflicts and in building relationships. Emotional intelligence is important for many industries but these competencies are probably the most important for client-facing engineers and project managers because of the complex interactions and communication strategies needed.

Concrete Stabilization Technologies, Inc. (CST) will discuss the basics of the material and technology, applications, and uses of Expanding Structural Polymers (ESP) in soils, as well as discuss the applications provided for mitigation of more severe geological hazards. Over the past 4 decades, technology has advanced in the soil stabilization and structural stabilization industry. Two-part polyurethane injections have revolutionized the soil and structural stabilization industry, providing superior solutions to older compaction grouting techniques. Informative discussions such as this provide an educational pathway for many industry professionals to evaluate the large possibility of solutions for subsurface voids, strengthening weak soils, lifting and supporting heavy structures and providing water-tight seals using ESP. These basic applications are also the blueprint for providing solutions to larger issues like applications after natural and man-made flooding, liquefaction during earthquakes, and landslides. Basic material properties, current project case studies, and structural research results presented.

Thursday Nov 04, 2021 @  08:00:AM  —  09:30:AM MDT

Chaos is mathematically defined as sensitivity to small changes in conditions. But what does that really mean and why does it matter? Chaotic behavior can be observed in systems that are relatively simple, such as second-order deterministic equations, a flowing fluid, and road traffic, to extremely complex systems such as weather, climate, and the stock market. We experience many such systems every day, and as engineers, we must design systems and devices that must function within these larger complex and potentially chaotic systems. Most of us learned about steady state and cycles/oscillations in systems; chaos is another type of system behavior. This presentation will introduce what chaos is, ways to visualize chaos, and what it means when a system is behaving chaotically.



This presentation will also discuss complex systems more generally. Complexity science is the science of systems that encompasses the non-linear interactions among the system’s parts. A complex system exhibits behavior beyond the behavior of its individual parts that result from the parts and their interactions. Approaching a problem with an understanding of how complex systems behave is much different than the linear problem-solving approach we learn as engineers. And indeed, most of our most pressing societal problems arise in complex systems, so a linear approach is unlikely to adequately address these problems. As engineers, we like to solve problems. Understanding chaos and complexity will give us additional tools to do what we do best.

Design and evaluation of the different modes of failure of the mine are examined, and how the different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode(s) of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement which is also discussed. This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to engineers that would be interested in learning more about this topic.

Aggregates makeup about 60% to 75% of the volume of concrete (70% to 85% by mass) and strongly influence both the fresh and hardened concrete properties. Recently, more and more emphasis has been placed on the need for blending aggregates to achieve well-graded combined aggregate mixtures. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the various techniques for blending aggregates to optimize aggregate packing and the resulting enhanced properties of the concrete. Will also discuss the controversy associate with combined aggregate mixtures.


Learning Objectives:

1. Define the advantages of combined aggregate mixtures

2. Compare the various techniques to achieve and evaluate aggregate gradations using: Coarseness Factor Chart, Individual Percent Retained, 45 Power Curve and the new Tarantula Curve

3. Provide the tools so you can combine and evaluate aggregate gradations 

4. Compare the various techniques with example problems

The Blitz Project is an expansion to the Stillwater Mine which represents a low initial capital and operating cost mining area with a 25-year mine life. The material from this project will add 530,000 ore tons and 350,000 mined ounces To the Stillwater Mine production annually. With this production increase for the Stillwater operation, the construction of a new ventilation circuit is essential for sustainable productivity. These ventilation changes and additions will ensure that the underground work environment presents minimal health & safety risks associated with common ventilation issues while providing a work environment that is conducive to hard work. The Blitz ventilation system construction required the addition of twin 2,600 foot Alimak raises to surface in a very remote location in the Beartooth Mountains. The driving of these raises required some very unique design to overcome the 2,600 foot length. Due to remoteness of the surface breakouts, helicopter support was necessary to facilitate construction activities. This paper will summarize these construction challenges and overall ventilation planning results.

Joint Presentation by Jeff Chaffee, P.E. and Erica Shuhler, P.E.

This presentation will delve into the Montana energy picture and speak to environmental and economic issues associated with energy in our state. As large coal-fired generating facilities are being shut down, reduced emissions to air, water, and land are an obvious benefit. But at what cost to our communities and families? The presentation will provide details on these changes with an emphasis on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). 

One of the drivers of the changes in energy sources noted above is the desire to mitigate climate change. Oregon and Washington have put policies and laws in place to move away from using coal for electrical generation. A significant portion of Montana’s coal-fired electrical generation has historically been shipped to the West Coast states. With that about to change, we should evaluate the numbers. What do these historic shifts in energy production mean to Montana’s GHG emissions? What impact might they have on GHG on a national and global scale? What are the economic impacts of these shutdowns? 

What about sustainability? What are the best sources of energy for the future, considering not only reduction of GHG, but also other environmental impacts? Where should Montana position itself in this discussion, leaving aside politics and tamping down passion? As Engineers, what should we be telling the general public about what is best for our future?

This presentation will also begin to explore answers to these questions. Because weather, climate, the economy, and collective human behavior are complex systems, chaos theory and the study of complex system behavior can give us guideposts to address these questions. We will begin to apply concepts from the presentation on chaos theory and complex systems to the problem of energy, economics, and climate change. How do we even begin to address these enormous challenges? What does chaos and complex systems theory tell us about how large complex systems behave in response to our actions, and how can any of us make a difference?

The presentation will provide differing perspectives at times, from a seasoned Professional Engineer who previously worked at a coal-fired generating facility and a mid-career Professional Engineer and student of chaos and complex systems who has a vision of vibrant and stable ecosystems that support our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our (great)5-grandchildren. This is a conversation that needs to begin, and why not begin by honoring differing perspectives.

Lightweight cellular concrete, or LCC, is a composite material of Portland cement, water, and air that can act as a lightweight, strong, durable, and inexpensive soil or fill replacement for geotechnical applications. Projects of all sizes have been routinely constructed by LCC providers across the world, from its typical uses such as pipeline abandonment projects to large volume tank filling or bridge approaches. LCC saves time, money, and natural resources by replacing aggregates with air bubbles, thereby solving settlement problems for bridge abutments, embankments, and other infrastructure by reducing weight by a factor of four, and can also solve low site problems while increasing bearing capacity by providing economical, quick methods to raise grades over large areas. This presentation will introduce construction professionals and the design community to LCC and assist them in specifying this product for daily use.

As HVAC systems account for nearly 40 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings in the United States, finding viable, innovative and high-efficiency HVAC solutions is more important than ever. This session will present a promising new HVAC system approach: Very high efficiency dedicated outside air systems (DOAS). This approach builds on the DOAS concept—which separates heating and cooling from the ventilation system to allow for optimal control of each of these critical building functions—by adding high efficiency heat recovery ventilation and focusing on increased equipment efficiency and optimized system design. Very high efficiency DOAS has been proven to yield significant energy and cost savings in new and existing small-to-medium commercial buildings while providing better indoor air quality and improved occupant comfort. 


Over the last few years, BetterBricks has partnered with regional utilities and HVAC experts to conduct a series of pilot demonstration projects across the Northwest to help better understand the design, installation and expected energy savings of this advanced HVAC solution. Attendees will learn the cost and energy savings outcomes of these projects including two in Montana. 


Key Learning objectives: 


• Understand the difference between standard and very high efficiency DOAS

• Discover how proper building ventilation can improve indoor-air quality, comfort and well-being

• Learn about the energy efficiency potential of upgrading/installing very high efficiency DOAS

• Understand some of the primary design principles and best practices when applying this very high efficiency DOAS approach in existing or new construction applications

There is a common misconception that structures using hollow structural sections (HSS) are more expensive than those comprised primarily of open sections. This presentation sets out to bust that myth – with insights direct from fabricators. The truth of the matter is that it is in the fabrication of HSS where costs can creep up, far more than the cost of the actual steel itself. So proper HSS member design and connections have a significant influence on the total fabricated cost of a structure. The Steel Tube Institute (STI) went directly to fabricators to learn how to reduce the costs of HSS fabrication and connections. This presentation is designed to share those insights, helping engineers learn what fabricators wish they knew about HSS.

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) is an important issue in Montana. Most people have seen watercraft inspection stations along our highways, but controlling AIS involves more than boat inspections. Construction and spill response work in Montana waters can involve boats and other equipment arriving from anywhere in the country. Heavy equipment, pumps, pipes, pilings and other equipment that have previously been used in water impacted by AIS can be transported to Montana. This begs the question of how these equipment and services can be provided without creating more severe impacts through AIS introduction. The common mantra Clean, Drain, Dry is great for boats, but can be problematic for construction equipment. A general overview of AIS, AIS regulations, and methods for inspection and decontamination of equipment will be presented.
