HSS Connection Design:

You probably have found that using HSS sections in your designs results in efficient and aesthetically pleasing structures. This course will provide you with valuable guidance for designing economical and constructible connections for those structures. Many HSS connection types will be discussed including moment connections, tension and compression connections, and truss and bracing connections. Welding and mechanical fastening will be reviewed, critical limit states will be identified, and design criteria and examples will be provided. Each attendee will receive a copy of the Course Notes and the NEW Design Guide 24.

Dos & Don'ts of Steel Construction:

Often, problems in steel design are not so apparent until after the job has been awarded and is in detailing, fabrication or erection.  Potential issues are avoidable by understanding structural steel systems and their connections.  This seminar will address different aspects of lateral system design, main member design, connection design and avoidable problems.  Actual examples from real projects will be highlighted and discussed.
