Welding Details Webinar Coming December 3

It has been said that "the devil is in the details," and welded connections are no different. Subtle changes can affect the performance, quality and cost of welded connections. AISC is hosting a webinar on Thursday, December 3, titled “Weld Details: Good, Bad and Ugly,” which will present preferred practices for quality, dependable and cost-effective welded connections.

Topics will include:

  • Details of butt, corner and lap joints
  • When and why width or thickness transitions are required in joints
  • Details of groove welds, fillet welds and plug welds
  • Economy of PJP groove welds versus fillet welds
  • The influence of left-in-place steel backing on statically, cyclically and seismically loaded connections
  • Many other "details on details"

This 1.5-hour webinar will begin at 12:30 p.m. (CT). The cost is $185 for AISC members, $285 for nonmembers and $155 for students and educators. (Fees are based on a per-site connection basis. Purchase one site connection and any number of members in your company or organization may view the webinar at that site connection. All attendees are eligible to receive CEUs/PDHs.)

Registrants will receive access to a PDF file of the presentation slides prior to the webinar, a PDH certificate for all attendees upon completion of the live webinar (1.5 PDHs) and complete instructions for accessing the live webinar. For more information and to register, please visit
