Harnessing the Power of AISC Design Guides

Speaker:  Lawrence F. Kruth, PE, Vice President of Engineering & Research American Institute of Steel Construction 

Structural Engineers are called upon to tackle tough analytical problems every day and AISC has many resources available to make that job a little bit easier. This one-hour presentation will familiarize you with the great technical resources available in the AISC Design Guide Series. We will review the Design Guide Series paying particular attention to the Design Guides that cover floor vibrations (DG#11), Base Plate and Anchor Rod Design (DG#1), retrofit and rehabilitation of existing structures (DG#15), Low and Medium Rise Buildings (DG#5), and design of industrial buildings (DG#7). The session will also include a general review of all AISC Design Guides, including the newest ones on column base plates, steel plate shear walls, welding, and fire.

This course will award 1 hour of continuing education.
