Registration is open for AISC’s new Night School course “Classical Methods of Structural Analysis,” which begins June 23. The course consists of eight webinar sessions on Monday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern Time and will address many of the classical methods used in the analysis of structures before the advent of the computer, which will aid in understanding modern analysis and design requirements for structural steel.
This course is intended to help structural engineers provide better service to their clients by improving their understanding of structural behavior and refreshing their ability to use the tools necessary for quick preliminary evaluation of structures.
Session 1: June 23 - Introduction and Basic Concepts
Session 2: June 30 - Strain Energy and Real Work
Session 3: July 14 - Deflections by Virtual Work
Session 4: July 21 - Moment Areas and Elastic Weights
Session 5: July 28 - Indeterminate Structures and the General Method
Session 6: August 11 - Indeterminate Structures by Slope Deflection
Session 7: August 18 - Approximate Methods and Moment Distribution
Session 8: August 25 - Classical Approaches Applied to Second-order Analysis
Attendees can either register for the entire eight-session package, one attendee per connection, and receive up to 1.2 CEUs/12 PDHs and 1 “EEU” certificate upon passing a series of quizzes and a final exam, or, register for individual webinars, with an unlimited number of attendees per connection, and receive 0.15 CEUs/1.5 PDHs per session.
