Steel School: Practical Wisdom
from 3 Industry Experts

3.0 SEAMASS-Certified PDHs
On October 9, you're invited to join us for Steel School , an informative three-part seminar that will cover several aspects of designing with and working with steel.
TOPICS & PRESENTERS
Braced Frames, Moment Frames and Cantilevers
Presenter: Erik Nelson | Structures Workshop

  • Lateral systems and interruptions of axial thru forces, collector forces with amplification, and R factors – practical design advice
  • Axial and Moment Load paths 
  • Structural Drawing information for fabricators regarding member axial of collectors vs axial thru forces on braced frames
  • Statics on braced frames when collector forces greatly exceed horizontal components of bracing members 
  • Simple design advice on when axial forces are too high for beam web connections and when moment designation should be used 
  • Load paths on axial thru forces and moments on stiffener welds within the column web.
  • Stiffeners and Doubler plates within moment frames, a discussion 
  • Larges difference in connection review and design of cantilevers vs lateral moment connections– what to look out for
 
Top Things You Should Know About HSS Connections
Presenter: Brad Fletcher | Atlas Tube

  • HSS connections often seem mysterious — but they don’t have to
  • While not a how-to guide, this presentation highlights aspects of HSS connection design that are often overlooked or misunderstood
  • Attendees will gain a clear understanding of tension, shear, moment and truss connections and how they differ from other types of connections.

Design Detailing and Efficiencies in Steel Design
from a Fabricator’s Perspective
Presenter: To Be Announced

  • Fabricators perspectives on cost effective detailing
  • Better ways to present steel solutions
  • Information for effective connection design
  • How changes impact production and cost
