In this post, I will discuss the tenth example in our steel design course covering the analysis and design of flexural beam members. The goal of this steel design example is to design a bearing plate for a simply supported beam in order to distribute the reactions at the supports. We are using the 13th…

In this post, I will discuss the twelfth example in our steel design course covering bolted and welded simple steel connections. The goal of this steel design example is to design a fillet welded connection for a plate in tension attached to a gusset plate. We are using the 13th edition of the AISC Steel Construction…

In this post, I will discuss the eleventh example in our steel design course covering bolted and welded simple steel connections. The goal of this steel design example is to calculate the length of fillet weld required for a connection subjected to given service dead and live loads. We are using the 13th edition of the…

In this post, I will discuss the ninth example in our steel design course covering the analysis and design of beam members. The goal of this steel design example is to choose the lightest beam section for a simply supported beam per LRFD and ASD. We are using the 13th edition of the AISC Steel Construction…

In this post, I will discuss the eighth example in our steel design course covering the analysis and design of beam members. The goal of this steel design example is to calculate the deflection due to dead and live loads for a simply supported wide flange beam. We are using the 13th edition of the AISC…
