Eliminating Costly Fit-Up Issues [U2]

The fit up and connection of rolled/curved structural steel members of differing thickness/weights and radial geometries must be considered by the construction team prior to rolling, fabrication, and erection. As architects and engineers continue to produce radical designs using curved steel members; the fit up and connections of these members will continue to be an issues and will become more prevalent and more costly to the fabricator. This is due to the ungoverned consequential cross sectional distortion of curved/rolled members within the industry. After attending the session, structural steel fabricators will be armed with the knowledge they need to identify these connection/fit up issues within the pre-construction contractual drawings, and be better suited to enter their bids without fear of running into costly connection/fit up issues of curved members in their shops or in the field.

Intended Audience: Fabricators, Detailers
Track: Constructability
