SKU: HSS_WebinarJuly2021 Category:


Title: Yield-Line Analysis in Practice
Date: Wednesday, July 14, 2021 Postponed – New date TBD.
Time: 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. CDT

STI’s webinar presenter is currently onsite at the Champlain Towers South building collapse in Florida assisting in the evaluation and recovery efforts. An updated webinar date will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

One distinction that sets HSS connections apart from open section connections is weak-axis bending of the HSS connecting face, leading us to the ever-intimidating yield-line analysis.  Yield-line analysis has been widely used in the analysis and design of steel members and connections to determine their ultimate strength and resistance.

Learning objectives include:

  • Basic various theories dealing with yield lines
  • The basic and simple yield line mechanism that may be adopted to solve complicated problems
  • Yield open-section members, closed-section members, cover plates, welded connections and bolted connections
  • Analysis of concentrated loads on hollow structural sections and analysis of some types of the tubular joints

Professional Development Hours
Each participant can earn 1.0 PDH and receive a certificate of completion from the Steel Tube Institute (STI). To receive a PDH certificate from STI, either for an individual or anybody in the group/site, you are required to complete the poll at the completion of the webinar.

Any participant that is licensed in Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, and/or New York is required to complete a quiz and submit your license number(s) 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. 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.

Registration Fees
Registration is $95 per person for individual and $300 for site registration.

  • An individual registration will provide a unique link for one login. Registrant is eligible for one PDH certificate provided the poll is completed at the conclusion of the webinar.
  • Site registration provides one link for login at a site location (i.e. the Chicago office), allowing multiple people to view the webinar in one room. Multiple PDH certificates may be issued provided the poll is completed by the registrant at the completion of the webinar and the attendee form is completed and returned within 24 hours of the webinar conclusion.
