SEAM Seminar: The AISC Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition and the 2016 Specification

SEAM will be hosting a half-day seminar presented by the American Institute of Steel Construction. Important changes and clarifications that have been incorporated into the 2016 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and the 15th Edition Steel Construction Manual will be explained. The seminar will examine the Specification chapter by chapter and highlight changes since the 2010 version. Design examples will be presented to demonstrate the changes in the Specification and how to apply useful design aides in the Manual.

The seminar will highlight changes to:

• Treatment of compression members with slender elements
• Treatment of tees and double angles in bending
• Shear provisions for built-up I-shapes
• Bolted connection provisions
• And more…
