The online resource offered by T. Bart Quimby, P.E., Ph.D., has been updated to include “A Beginner’s Guide to the Steel Construction Manual, 14th ed.” The guide introduces many of the key areas in AISC’s 14th Edition Manual that students should become familiar with before venturing into the real world. The new 14th Edition Manual became available for purchase (www.aisc.org/manual) on July 1.
Quimby is a professor of civil engineering at the University of Alaska Anchorage and years ago established his website, www.bgstructuralengineering.com (“A Beginner’s Guide to Structural Engineering”), as an online repository for 20 years of lecture notes. Among other activities, Quimby served on the rules committee for the ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition from 2000 through May, 2011, and continues to maintain the website www.nssbc.info.
