Presentation Description

Structural Engineering. For when guessing just won’t do.
Presenters: Bill Gorlin, Michael Nishball, Miriam Paschetto
21st century rigging effects would not be possible without the help of a structural engineer. The size and weight of flown scenery, coupled with the speed that it moves, creates some astonishing forces that mere mortals cannot comprehend. A panel of professional engineers who specialize in entertainment rigging will provide some insights into how they do that voo-doo they do so well. From the smallest pipe grid to the 100t+ rigs touring the country, the panel will attempt to demystify the process of making sure that which we hang doesn’t pull the building down.
