After receiving his Master’s degree in civil engineering from the University of New Brunswick, Charles Albert began his career as a research associate at the University of Alberta, where he was involved in testing and numerical modelling of steel beams in cantilever-suspended-span construction.

Employed at the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction since 1991, he has developed educational material for CISC courses on steel buildings, bridges and seismic design. Other areas of activities have included the preparation of computer software and various publications, notably the Handbook of Steel Construction.

Webinar Description

Bolted connections are often subject to eccentric loads whose line of action does not pass through the centroid of the bolt group. This webinar covers traditional methods, such as the instantaneous centre of rotation, for determining the resistance of eccentrically loaded bolt groups in connections of various configurations. Bolt groups subject to an inclined point load applied in-plane are included, as are bolt groups subject to an out-of-plane vertical load.

The webinar accompanies the CISC publication titled Eccentrically Loaded Bolt Groups (Design Module 1), 2nd Edition. The use of various charts and tables in the module is illustrated by means of solved examples. Practical applications featuring both bearing-type and slip-critical connections are highlighted. The design methods apply to high-strength bolts produced to ASTM F3125 and comply with CSA Standard S16:19, Design of Steel Structures.
