The Steel Tube Institute (STI) is hosting a webinar, “Curved HSS Members: Design and Practical Considerations,” this Thursday, November 3, from 11 a.m. to noon (CT). Topics will include: What steel shapes can be curved and how do they react to the bending process; methods and equipment used for bending; the physical and metallurgical effects of section bending; and information required by the bender to produce the curve.

Registration details are available here. For more on this topic, see the article “There’s More than One Way to Bend a Beam” from our January issue.
