Column base connections are arguably the most important connections in the entire building, transferring flexure, shear and axial force from the entire structure into the foundation.
Learn more about them by attending the upcoming webinar “Column Base Connections - What Several Years of Testing Has Taught Us,” which will be presented by Amit Kanvinde, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the University of California, Davis, on June 14.
The lecture will explain a comprehensive study, encompassing 19 large-scale tests (and several more currently planned) as well as analysis and finite element simulation, which provides rare insight into the response of these important connections. Various issues including moment transfer, shear transfer and weld details will be discussed, as well as connection flexibility and its effect on building seismic response in the context of improvements to existing design and analysis methods.
The 1.5-hour webinar will take place at 12:30 PM (CDT) on Thursday, June 14, 2012.
Prices are as follows: $185 for members, $285 non-members and $155 for students/educators.
Fees are based on a per-site connection basis. Purchase one site connection and any number of members in your company or organization may attend at that site connection. All attendees are eligible to receive CEUs/PDHs.) Registrants will receive:
- Access to a PDF file of the presentation slides prior to the live webinar
- CEU/PDH certificates for all attendees upon completion of the live webinar (0.15/1.5 CEUs/PDHs)
- Complete instructions for accessing the live webinar
