Designing Built-Up Flexural Members

Built-up flexural members are made by combining shapes and plates so that they work together as a single flexural member.

We'll delve into the overall provisions for built-up beams, including all applicable limit states.

We will also explore built-up cross-sections such as box and I-shaped beams formed from channels, double angles that form T-shaped sections, and crane rail girders formed with channels as a cap to an I-shape. This webinar will go over examples of a variety of built-up sections using both ASD and LRFD.

Note that this webinar is an encore presentation of the one given at The Virtual Steel Conference this past April.
