Field Fixes and Solutions

What do you do when an anchor rod hole is misplaced? Or the columns aren't plumb? More importantly, what can you do to prevent these problems from occurring in the first place? This session covers a wide range of topics and provides the tools and knowledge to not only fix, but also to potentially prevent these field problems. Unlike other webinars or seminars this one is more philosophical than technical in nature based upon many years of practical experience. Topics include:

- What to do when notified about a field problem
- Anchor rods
- Columns and beams
- Reinforcing members and connections
- Fit-up problems
- Member selection guidelines

This presentation was given as the seventh of eight sessions of Night School 18:  Steel Construction:  From the Mill to Topping Out.  You can find other sessions from this Night School in the Education Archives at the following links.
