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.
The webinar will review:
Beth has worked for 25 years as a structural engineer in the fields of consulting engineering, software, and continuing education. During her first few years, her experiences in construction defect litigation cemented her understanding of how and how NOT to design a structure. She spent the following years as a practicing consulting engineer in San Diego, and later as a director of structural software sales and development with Bentley. In her current position with FORSE, she continues to pursue both the design and educational aspects of structural engineering. One topic Beth highlights is structural steel HSS design, as a technical consultant to the Steel Tube Institute. Beth is a licensed PE and SE in California and a licensed PE in Arkansas.
