Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for Jun. 27 to Jul. 3 covered NFPA 99, 40 Under 40, fire protection for IDF, MDF rooms, noise and vibration control in building design, and stand-alone health care buildings. Link to each article below.

1. NFPA 99: A fire and life safety perspective

NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code (2015 edition) covers a broad range of criteria for health care facilities. This portion focuses on fire, explosion prevention, and life safety.

2. 40 Under 40

Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine wants to shape the future of young engineers, and will do so by recognizing and encouraging them through mentoring articles in the magazine, young engineer networking events, and the 40 Under 40 program.

3. Case study: Fire protection for IDF, MDF rooms

Fire protection systems were selected for a building with intermediate distribution frame (IDF) or main distribution frame (MDF) rooms.

4. Noise and vibration control in building design

The acoustical environment in a building-good or bad-is the result of design. For optimal occupant comfort and facility functionality, attention to noise and vibration issues should be included early and throughout the building design and construction process.

5. Stand-alone health care buildings

Stand-alone medical buildings and specialized treatment facilities are engineering challenges, and more are being designed and built due to changes in health care requirements.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, June 27 to July 3, for articles published within the last two months.
