Webinar on the Wonderful World of Buckling


Continuing Education Credits Available – 1.5 PDH Credits

A thin compression element of a cold-formed steel member – such as a flange or a web — may buckle before it reaches its yield stress. Thus, cold-formed steel design involves estimating the influence such buckling has on the strength of a beam or column.

What are these buckling conditions? How do they differ in their behavior? This webinar will explore the basic buckling behaviors encountered as one designs a cold-formed steel beam or column. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamental behavior and highlight the design expressions that enable an engineer to estimate buckling strength.

Join Roger LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E., on this journey through the wonderful world of buckling.

Roger LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E.Presenter: Roger LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E., Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute

Dr. Roger A. LaBoube is Curator’s Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and former director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Missouri University of Science & Technology. Dr. LaBoube holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. He has an extensive background in the design and behavior of cold-formed steel structures. His research and design activities have touched on many facets of cold-formed steel construction, including cold-formed steel beams, panels, trusses, headers, and wall studs as well as bolt, weld, and screw connections. Dr. LaBoube is active in several professional organizations and societies. He serves as chairman of the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) Committee on Framing Standards and is an emeritus member of the AISI Committee on Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. He is a registered professional engineer in Missouri.
