Structural Welding: Design and Specification

an eight-hour seminar on the design and specification of welding for steel-framed structures using the AWS D1.1-2010 Structural Welding Code - Steel, the AISC 2010 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, the AISC Seismic Provisions, and recent research.  It will also include previews into pending changes in the above specifications, and reveal related areas of research and developments in structural welding.
