Over the years, the Steel Tube Institute has fielded hundreds of inquiries about the proper specification and design of HSS members and their connections. We have selected a few of our favorite do’s and don’ts and will share them throughout the course of the webinar. Our broad overview will include provisions related to end distance, weld length, wall thickness, material, and more.
