Seminar Information

This course focuses on Chapters E, F, and H of AISC 360-10 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, June 22, 2010, addressing single angle flexural members, beams with torsion, column base plate design and symmetric, singly symmetric and unsymmetric compression members. Single angle flexural members will be considered with a variety of lateral-torsional bracing conditions. Bending about the geometric and principal axes and biaxial bending will be addressed. Flexural members that must also carry torsional moments will be covered. These include single angles, zees, I-shapes loaded in torsion, and HSS loaded in torsion. Base plates that are required to carry compression, tension and bending will be presented. The seminar will also address single and double angle and single and double WT compression members.

Handouts All attendees will receive copy of presentation slides.
