Cold-Formed Steel Design Seminar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


The Light Gauge Steel Engineers Association and American Iron & Steel
Institute (AISI) present a continuing educational program offering an
industry-approved approach to  cold-formed steel design.  This six-hour
seminar is specifically tailored to design engineers, engineering students and
professors, and anyone involved in the design of cold-formed steel structures.

WHEN:	Offered on Two Days:
		July 24, Friday	Or
		July 25, Saturday
		8 a.m. To 4 p.m.
		Registration begins at 7:30 a.m.

WHERE:	TRAINING CENTER

OTHER SITES IN 1998:   Orlando (August 14 and 15), San Diego (October 23 and
24), Atlanta (November 20 and 21), Nashville (December 18 and 19).  Also:
Chicago (January 1999).


CONTENT

The seminar teaches how to design with cold-formed steel and how to use the
AISI (American Iron & Steel Institute) 1996 Specification for the Design of
Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and 1996 Cold-Formed Design Manual.  It
explains the fundamental behavior of cold-formed steel structural members,
design requirements, and cold-formed steel applications, including:  Tension
Members, Elements and Behavior, Members in Bending, Columns and Beam-Columns,
Member Bracing, Connections and Joints, Testing for Special Cases, Light Gauge
Steel Framing.

CEU CREDITS

Attendees will be awarded 0.6 Continuing Education Units for the seminar.
