Last Day to Register for Feb. 14 Direct Analysis Webinar
Posted by Tasha Weiss on February 13, 2013 at 4:16 PM.

This Valentine’s Day, let us show you why you’ll love the direct analysis method for steel-framed structures.


If you haven’t already registered for AISC’s live webinar “Practical Use of the Direct Analysis Method,” which happens tomorrow — February 14 — you still have time! Online registration will remain open until 11 p.m. (PST) tonight.


The direct analysis method for steel-framed structures was introduced in the 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and continues in the 2010 version of the Specification. The primary benefit of this approach to analysis and design is the elimination of K-factors in the design phase.


This webinar session will introduce the direct analysis method, highlight the unique features and benefits of this approach and discuss the factors that must be included in all designs. Presented by Louis F. Geschwindner, Ph.D., P.E., professor emeritus of architectural engineering at Penn State University and AISC’s former vice president of engineering and research, the method will be illustrated through simplified examples and conclude with an example of the method applied to an actual steel-framed building.


The 1.5-hour webinar will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:


10:30 a.m. PST
11:30 a.m. MST
12:30 p.m. CST
1:30 p.m. EST


The cost of the webinar is $185 for AISC members, $285 for non-members and $155 for students and 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 view the webinar 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 webinar, CEU/PDH certificates for all attendees upon completion of the live webinar (0.15 CEUs/1.5 PDHs) and complete instructions for accessing the live webinar.
