Night School: Fundamentals of Connection Design (1 of 8)

Brush up on our connection design skills with this 12-hour course (eight 1.5-hour sessions) presented by Brad Davis and Matthew Eatherton!

The course delivers foundational instruction in the analysis and design of connections starting with discussions on critical bolt and weld limit states. We’ll dive right into practical design examples and also take a comprehensive look at shear connections. In the second half of the course, we’ll introduce the design of moment, bracing, and seismic connections.

Session 1:  Fundamental Concepts, Part I, provides an overview of basic connection types including tension, compression, framing, and moment connections. Classification of beam-to-column connections will be discussed, followed by a review of limit states in the load path. Bolt-related limit states and detailing will be reviewed with discussions on different types of bolts and bolt connections, bolt installation, bolt shear strength, and combined shear plus tension strength.
