Overview

Please Note:
*********************************************************************************
This course is held online over 4 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):
Oct 26-28 - 11:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern (including 40 minute lunch and two 10 minute breaks)
Oct 30 - 11:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern (including 40 minute lunch and two 10 minute breaks) *********************************************************************************

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Achieve economy on your projects by the skills developed through participating in the two workshops on designing and detailing connections under instructor guidance
  • Design bolted and welded connections under static and dynamic loading
  • Apply methods learnt from the course to achieve economy in design, fabrication and erection of steel structures

Description
Connections form a very important part of any steel structure and integrity of the structure depends on them. Accurate details and specifications are required for fabrication to ensure trouble-free erection. There is a potential for achieving economy in designing and specifying connections which is the focus of this workshop.

Course Outline:

  • Introduction
  • Connection types
  • Bolts in bearing-type connections
  • Bolts in slip-resistance connections
  • Welding design for stiffeners
  • Design of column base plates
  • Hollow structural section connections
  • Design for fatigue
  • Connection design for earthquake loading
  • Installation and inspection of bolts

Who Should Attend
Structural Designers • Consulting Engineers • Detailers • Specification Writers • Civil Engineers in large industries • Technicians and Technologists • Fabricators and Erectors of Steel Structures

Special Feature:
The lectures will be augmented by the case histories of design and detailing from the instructors practical experience.

Required Resources:
Please bring your own copy of the Handbook of Steel Construction, published by Canadian Institute for Steel Construction, CISC- Toronto, 11th Edition.
