Manual Seminar Coming to Chicago August 15

The 15th Edition AISC Steel Construction Manual is now available. AISC will be presenting a half-day seminar in Chicago on Tuesday, August 15, from 8 a.m. to noon, that will discuss important changes and clarifications that have been incorporated into this new edition, as well as the 2016 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings. The Manual is also available for purchase with this seminar for only $120 (a $400 value)!

This in-person seminar will examine the Specification chapter by chapter and highlight changes since the 2010 version. Design examples will also be presented to demonstrate the changes in the Specification, as well as how to apply useful design aids in the Manual. The seminar will highlight changes to treatment of compression members with slender elements, treatment of tees and double angles in bending, shear provisions for built-up I-shapes, bolted connection provisions and more.
