Title: HSS Connection Design Software
Date: Wednesday, October 6, 2021
Time: 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. CDT

Providing proper connection design is critical not only to a structure’s overall performance, but also to its cost-effective construction. With several limit states to consider, the use of software can greatly assist in designing HSS connections efficiently. This presentation provides an overview of commercially available software for performing HSS connection design for both the delegated steel connection engineer as well as EORs who need to confirm wall thickness is adequate for their delegated steel connections.

Learning objectives include:

  • Current HSS connection software programs
  • Common software design capabilities and limitations
  • Considerations to minimize costly connections
  • The Steel Tube Institute’s updated HSS Connex program

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.
