Registration is now open for the 2014 ASCE/SEI Structures Congress, which will be held in Boston, April 3-5, at the Sheraton Boston Hotel and Hynes Convention Center.
The technical program features more than 120 technical sessions, including a track of steel-related topics:
- New AISC Design Guides: AISC Design Guide 26, Design of Blast Resistant Structures and Design Guide 28, Stability Design of Steel Buildings provides an overview of these two new AISC Design Guides presented by the authors.
- Steel Connection Innovations features recent research and studies on various connection topics, such as partially restrained bolted beam-to-column connections, gusset plate stability and prediction of fracture of welded moment connections under cyclic loading.
- Steel Braced Frame Innovations includes presentations on seismic design of multi-tiered braced frames and eccentrically braced frames.
- Composite Construction focuses on new analysis and design procedures for steel-concrete composite shear walls and composite frame systems.
AISC is a Gold sponsor of the Congress.
