Abstract:

The Building and Fire Research Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in cooperation with the American Institute of Steel Construction, sponsored a workshop on automated steel construction. The purpose of the workshop was to investigate the development of new technologies to facilitate automating the steel construction process. Desired outcomes included a clear definition of issues and constraints, the identification of candidate breakthrough technologies, and the development of a research roadmap. A description of the workshop structure, agenda, and preliminary results are presented.
