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.
How does the type of electrode affect the strength of the fillet weld
What if the connection has both longitudinal and transverse welds
Don't forget to check the shear stress of the base metal
Summary of strengths connection calculations per LRFD and ASD
Someone has to build it, so make it easy for them.
Designing a connection from scratch.
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.
