May 14 Webinar to Cover Alternate Connection Methods

Take a fresh look at connection design by attending AISC’s Alternate Methods of Connection Design webinar next Thursday, May 14.

The AISC Specification provides requirements for connection design while resources such as the Manual and Design Guides present primary recommendations and guidance for the design of connections. This webinar will discuss alternate methods of connection design that are not found in the Manual but may be used given that these methods meet the Specification requirements. Certain connection requirements will be examined, such as rotational ductility for simple connections and torsional restraint for beam end connections. Other topics include alternates to the instantaneous center of rotation method of analysis on bolt groups, alternate methods to address prying action and design of built-up partial penetration welds.

The 1.5-hour webinar will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:

10:30 a.m. PDT
11:30 a.m. MDT
12:30 p.m. CDT
1:30 p.m. EDT
