SteelDay Webinar Available Online
Posted by Tasha Weiss on October 5, 2011 at 10:26 AM.


As part of SteelDay 2011, AISC offered a live online presentation on “Practical Steel Metallurgy for the Structural Steel User,” presented by Doug Rees-Evans of Steel Dynamics, Inc. If you were out at a SteelDay event on September 23 or just couldn’t make the webinar — don’t fret! A recording of the presentation is now available for free online viewing on the AISC website at


Structural engineers, architects, fabricators and others in the steel construction industry will learn valuable information about the properties of steel and how they affect steel behavior. The presentation provides practical information on steel metallurgy and addresses common questions such as:


  • Iron and Steel: What is the difference?   
  • How can a steel mill control chemistry? Isn’t the chemistry dependent upon what scrap is used?
  • Why are there multiple grades of steel?
  • What is the basis of a Mill Test Report?


Registrants can download the presentation slides prior to viewing the webinar and will receive complete instructions for accessing the webinar on the AISC website at


Upon completing the webinar, you can earn CEUs/PDHs by passing an online quiz available at no charge through the AISC Bookstore at
