I have to ask, where in the heck did you get your graduate degree and what planet was the instructor from to refer to Omar Blodgett’s book on the Design of Welded Structures as “dated”.
I bet the reason is that it is based on fundamental statics and working stress design. I've heard repeatedly that FEA instruction is considered a substitute for applied mechanics by many academics. I don't know how many people I've run into who can't draw a simple free- body diagram.
