Eccentrically Loaded Weld Groups
Welded connections are often subject to eccentric loads whose line of action does not pass through the centroid of the weld group. This webinar covers traditional methods, such as the instantaneous center of rotation, for determining the resistance of eccentrically loaded weld groups in connections of various configurations. Weld groups subject to an inclined point load applied in-plane are included, as are groups subject to a vertical out-of-plane load.
The webinar accompanies the CISC publication titled Eccentrically Loaded Weld Groups, 2nd Edition. The use of various charts and tables in the module is illustrated by means of solved examples. The design methods comply with CSA Standard S16:19, Design of steel structures, which references CSA Standard W59 18, Welded steel construction.

Steel Design for Low Seismicity
Conventional Construction is the norm in regions of low seismicity. However, earthquake loads need to be checked and compared to other lateral loads (particularly wind) to establish the governing load cases. The design method and design forces are also influenced by the building period, by geometric irregularities and by poor soil conditions. This webinar will introduce to the participant, the methodology of determining earthquake loads and design considerations based on the NBCC 2015 and CSA S16-14 as they relate to regions of low seismicity.
