AIA Approved CE Webinar On Demand: Beam to HSS Column Axial and Moment Connection Examples (August 2023)

Using wide flange beams and HSS columns can lead to a very effective framing system. In this presentation, we will focus on the joint between a wide flange beam and an HSS column. There are many situations where the connection of the WF beam to the HSS column requires the transfer of beam axial load and/or moment, but limited guidance exists for this topic.

Learning Objectives
Attendees will gain practical knowledge of:

  • The types of axial and moment connections as well as their economic considerations
  • Common shear connection design to HSS columns incorporating axial loading
  • Considerations for flange-plated moment connections to HSS
  • Multiple design examples and additional resources
