Webinars On Demand: Advantages Of Closed Sections In Torsion & Compression




If you’ve ever tried to calculate the torsional capacity of a wide flange or similar open shape, you know it can lead to major headaches.  Not only is it much easier to calculate the torsional capacity of round or rectangular shapes, they also have much greater capacity than their open section counterparts.

Learning objectives include:

  • Gain a better understanding of torsional stresses
  • Learn about design and connection of torsional members
  • Know the advantages of closed sections versus open sections for torsion and compression
  • Recognize weight-to-strength and cost-to-strength ratios for closed versus open sections
