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.
Charles is currently Manager of Technical Publications and Services at the CISC.
This Steelcast webinar surveys the main CSA and ASTM structural steel grades used in building and bridge applications, notably those listed in CSA S16:19 and S6:19. The presentation examines grades for hot-rolled shapes, HSS, plates, bolts and anchor rods. Other topics include substitute grades, unidentified steels, steels produced overseas and historical steel grades.
Structural Steel Grades also discusses differences between grades, selection criteria, high-strength and notch-tough steels, availability and the CISC Handbook. Cold-formed and welding products are not covered.
