Night School: Fundamentals of Connection Design (3 of 8)

Brush up on our connection design skills with this 12-hour course (eight 1.5-hour sessions) presented by Brad Davis and Matthew Eatherton!

The course delivers foundational instruction in the analysis and design of connections starting with discussions on critical bolt and weld limit states. We’ll dive right into practical design examples and also take a comprehensive look at shear connections. In the second half of the course, we’ll introduce the design of moment, bracing, and seismic connections.

Session 3: Shear Connections, Part I, provides an overview of various types of shear connections including the advantages and disadvantages of each. Design considerations for shear connections, a review of limit states for block shear and flexural strength in coped beams, and shear end-plate and double angle connection design will be discussed. Design examples will be presented to demonstrate the concepts discussed.
