  • Understand the requirements of the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings when designing a fillet welded connection
View Curriculum
Requirements
  • The design and analysis will be done per the requirements found in the AISC Specification. Students can download the Specification at the following link: http://www.aisc.org/uploadedfiles/steel_solution_center/technical_resources/engineering_faqs/2005specification_third_printing.pdf
  • Student should have basic knowledge of basic knowledge of engineering stress
  • Examples will be accompanied by spreadsheets, so it will be beneficial to have access to either Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets
Description

This course is the perfect introduction to simple fillet welded connections. Simple connections refer to connections in which the resultant force that must be resisted by the connection passes through the center of gravity of the connection.  Therefore, each part of the connection is assumed to resist an equal share of the load. 

Students will learn the basics of fillet welds and see actual worked out examples. Connection design is done according to the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Building, and it will be provided to the students for download.

This course consists of 7 lecture videos and 4 example videos. Each example comes with a corresponding Excel spreadsheet for further ease.

This course should take about 1-2 weeks to complete.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for practicing engineers and architects as well as engineering and architecture students looking to learn how to analyze and design simple fillet welded connections.
  • This course is also meant for anyone who just wants to learn more about fillet welds

Founder of EngineeringExamples.net

My name is Abdul Siraj.  I have a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and a master's degree in structural engineering. I have over 5 years of experience as a structural engineer in the offshore and subsea oil and gas industry. I am also the founder of Engineering Examples.

I'm constantly learning new engineering concepts and would love to share them with the rest of the world. My goal is to create courses on a variety of engineering topics ranging from structural to mechanical to chemical engineering. 

When teaching, I prefer to focus on application rather than theory because I feel true understanding is when you can apply what have learned.

Please support me in this effort.
