Night School: Fundamentals of Connection Design (7 of 8)

Brush up on our connection design skills with this 12-hour course (eight 1.5-hour sessions) presented by Brad Davis and Matthew Eatherton!

The course delivers foundational instruction in the analysis and design of connections starting with discussions on critical bolt and weld limit states. We’ll dive right into practical design examples and also take a comprehensive look at shear connections. In the second half of the course, we’ll introduce the design of moment, bracing, and seismic connections.

Session 7: Bracing Connections presents information on light and heavy bracing connections and discussed the differences and similarities between the two. Typical details for light and heavy connections will be presented. Member, bolt and weld limit states will be reviewed. The presentation then introduces the Uniform Force Method for designing bracing connections.
