Two-Part Webinar: Fatigue of Welded Connections
Posted by Tasha Weiss on May 15, 2013 at 11:08 AM.

AISC is offering the opportunity to dive into the topic of fatigue of welded connections with a two-part live webinar on May 23 and May 30 titled “Fatigue of Welded Connections - A Primer.”


Part 1, on May 23, will examine the basic concepts behind fatigue including the definition, application and causation, as well as welded connections and variables affecting fatigue. It will also review the aspects of the design model including fatigue testing, categories of connection details and predictive model.


Part 2, on May 30, considers weld geometries in detail with a practical focus on how to increase the fatigue resistance of welded connections. Fatigue enhancement methods will be presented and the role of material toughness on fatigue life will be discussed, along with case studies.


Both parts of the webinar are 1.5 hours long and will use AISC 360 Appendix 3. On both days they will begin at the following times, relative to time zone:


10:30 a.m. PDT
11:30 a.m. MDT
12:30 p.m. CDT
1:30 p.m. EDT


The cost of the two-part webinar series is $325 for AISC members, $500 for non-members and $270 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 (up to 0.30/3.0 CEUs/PDHs) and complete instructions for accessing the live webinar.
