E – 1834 Principles of Steel Design

Intended Audience: Civil Engineers.



Use of steel as a construction material has grown exponentially in recent years. The popularity of steel construction is due, in part, to its many advantages: for example, steel is a strong, durable, design-flexible, sustainable, cost efficient, safe, and environment friendly building material. In this course, we will examine fundamental, intermediate, and some advanced principles of steel design. The webinar is most suitable for engineers, technicians, and other professionals who already have some background in steel design.

We will discuss the allowable stress design (ASD), load and resistance factor design (LRFD), and plastic design methods for structural steel, and you will learn procedures for performing advanced analysis and design of tension members, compression members, bars and rods, base plates, axially loaded columns, simple and continuous beams, and beams for moment. This course includes numerous formulas and exercises that will guide you through design problems to their practical solutions, in accordance with the latest standards of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).

In Steel Design Principles, you’ll learn …
