Live Webinars

Design of Reinforced Steel Members Part II

This webinar is a continuation of the AISC webinar, Design of Reinforcement for Steel Members. Several topics will be discussed which affect the strength and serviceability of reinforced steel members. Deflection of beams with pre-load will be discussed briefly, and further information will be provided on the design of built-up columns. Other topics include: weld design, including the calculation of weld strength for built-up columns; how intermittent welds affect the section properties of a built-up member; local buckling, including the effect of stitch welds on the local buckling of plates. An example problem will be used to illustrate some of the design principles for a composite beam with reinforcement at the tension flange.

Registrants will receive:

              • Access to a PDF file of the presentation slides prior to webinar
              • CEU/PDH certificate upon completion of the live webinar
