Building one’s expertise in HSS design broadens the options in one’s design toolkit. For those looking to increase their HSS knowledge, this webinar will highlight several of the unique aspects of HSS design. These include yield-line application, fire rating, the Qf factor and HSS-specific connection checks.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the design differences between wide-flange and HSS members
  • Take advantage of HSS’s biaxial and torsional strengths
  • Implement appropriate factors for fire rating and utilization
  • Review basic theories dealing with yield lines and plastification

Professional Development Hours
Each participant can earn 1.0 PDH or 1.0 AIA LU and receive a certificate of completion from the Steel Tube Institute (STI). To receive a PDH or LU certificate from STI, either for an individual or anybody in the group/site, you must complete both poll questions and attend the entire webinar.

Any participant that holds a PE license in Florida, Maryland, New York and/or North Carolina is required to complete a quiz for your PDH. Architects should submit their AIA #, if any, to receive a LU. The link will be emailed to the registrant at the conclusion of the webinar and must be completed within 24 hours of the conclusion of the webinar. If you are a site registration, the registrant will need to send this link to any participant that is licensed in any of these four states.

Site registrants will also need to complete and return an attendee form to confirm attendance. This form will be included in your confirmation email from GoToWebinar. Once completed, the form shall be emailed to within 24 hours after the completion of the webinar.
