Introducing Design Guide 21 Welded Connections, Second Edition [C1]

The second edition of AISC's Design Guide 21 Welded Connections: A Primer for Engineers has been recently released. This updated edition references provisions in AISC 360-16, AISC 341-16 and AWS D1.1:2015. The Guide contains new chapters dealing with seismic considerations and fracture mechanics as applied to welded connections, and the chapter on fatigue has been expanded. The popular first edition chapter on ""special welding applications"" has been divided and expanded: more special applications are addressed and a new chapter on ""problems and fixes"" addresses commonly encountered problems with practical advice to solve the problem. This session will focus on four new topics discussed in the new Design Guide 21 as follows:
  • Special Welding Applications
  • Problems and Fixes
  • Seismic
  • Fracture Mechanics

Intended Audience: Engineers, Fabricators, Erectors, Detailers
Track: Connections

  • Date: 4/11/2018 - 4/13/2018
  • PDH Credits: 0
