Live AISC Reinforced Steel Members Webinar this Thursday

AISC will host a live webinar, “Design of Reinforced Steel Members Part II,” this Thursday, February 13. The webinar is a continuation of AISC’s presentation last November on “Design of Reinforcement for Steel Members.” (The recording is available for online viewing.)

The presentation will discuss topics which affect the strength and serviceability of reinforced steel members. Deflection of beams with pre-load will be discussed briefly, and further information on the design of built-up columns will be provided. Other topics include: weld design, including the calculation of weld strength for built-up columns; how intermittent welds affect the section properties of a built-up member; local buckling, including the effect of stitch welds on the local buckling of plates. An example problem will be used to illustrate some of the design principles for a composite beam with reinforcement at the tension flange.

The 1.5-hour webinar will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:
10:30 a.m. PST
11:30 a.m. MST
12:30 p.m. CST
