Bending Steel, Braced Frame Connections, and High-Strength Bolts

Three articles focus on practical topics in steel construction:

  • "What Engineers Should Know About Bending Steel" discusses who bends steel, methods of bending and how to specify bent steel on construction drawings.
  • "24 Tips for Simplifying Braced Frame Connections" presents tips on recommended size of members, specifying connection forces, use of welds and more.
  • "High-Strength Bolting Made Easy" answers commonly asked equations on high-strength bolted joint design and construction including joint surfaces and bolt pretensioning.

This course is based on articles from Modern Steel Construction.

You must purchase and pass a quiz to receive a PDH certificate for this course.
