    I’m interested to see how this blog goes.  We use epoxies for numerous connections, especially for additions at existing structures. 

    • Russell – I’ll add that to the list of topics to cover in the blog. . .thanks for the comment! You’re also entered to win one of our prize packs. I look forward to your comments on other topics of interest.

    Sounds like an interesting blog so I have subscribed… but where is the love for us Canadian engineers? (Boo to the US only sweepstakes)

    • Shane – Thanks for the feedback. We apologize that we couldn’t include Canada in the sweepstakes, but we’ll look into that for next time. We hope you find the blog useful and informative!

    This is a really great way to discuss wood engineering. I second Shane F’s comment – how about something for the Canadian engineers.

  • Glad to see Simpson working to share knowledge with this blog.  I enjoy reading the structural reports that come out but I would just as soon read the information in a blog format to save a little paper.  The ability to post comments and ask questions related to the posts is definitely a good tool.  I subscribed to the blog a few weeks ago and I appreciate the effort by Simpson to reach out to engineers in this manner. 

    • Jason – Thank you for your positive feedback. I hope you’ll continue to engage with us on the blog by posting comments on other topics of interest.

    I think it would be helpful to have some discussion about using Titen HD Screw Anchors in CMU, where the anchor is either in or close to the mortar joint of the CMU.

    To succeed in structrural engineering, you’ve GOT to have good connections!

    Good Connections make Strong Ties.
