Title: HSS Truss ConnectionsAIA Approved CE December 2023 Webinar | HSS Truss Connections
Date: Wednesday, December 6, 2023
Time: 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. CDT
Format: Live Webinar
Level: Intermediate to Advanced
1.0 PDH | 1.0 LU|HSW

When designing a truss comprised of HSS members, it is important to recognize that choosing member sizes with the minimum amount of steel may not always lead to the most successful connection. Considerations such as connection type and failure mode are equally important factors in a cost-effective and adequate connection design. There are rules of thumb and tools available that the connection designer (whether EOR or delegated designer) can follow.

Learning Objectives
The webinar will review:

  • Sizing chord and branch members for efficient connection design
  • Examples of both properly and improperly designed trusses demonstrating the effects on the
    connection design and total cost of the truss
  • Bolted and welded truss connection details
  • A slotted HSS truss connection design example utilizing new AISC 360-22 design provisions

Professional Development Hours
Each participant can earn 1.0 PDH or 1.0 AIA 1.0 LU|HSW and receive a certificate of completion from the Steel Tube Institute (STI). To receive a certificate from STI, you must login to the webinar via your unique registration link, attend the webinar in its entirety, and complete both poll questions.

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. 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.

Architects should complete the quiz and submit their AIA #, if any, to receive a LU|HSW certificate.
