The Steel Joist Institute brings a special guest speaker, Dr. James M. Fisher, for the webinar “Joist Girder Moment Connections to the Weak Axis of Wide Flange Columns.” This webinar covers the use of the SJI Spreadsheet for the design of moment connections to building sidewall and interior wide flange columns (LRFD and ASD). Background information as to the AISC connection design criteria used within the Spreadsheet will be presented along with an interactive demonstration of the Spreadsheet.
- The theory included in the connection Spreadsheet.
- How the Spreadsheet can be used to optimize connections and their effect on columns.
- A detailed interactive example of a Joist Girder Moment Connection to a Sidewall Column will be presented.
Dr. James M. Fisher is Vice President Emeritus of Computerized Structural Design (CSD), a Milwaukee, WI based structural engineering firm.
