Webinar on Overview of the Fundamental Behavior of Cold-Formed Steel Members and Connections

Continuing Education Credits Available – 1.5 PDH Credits

The concepts of cold-formed steel behavior and design are not typically taught in engineering schools and therefore engineers are often required to self-teach these concepts. Therefore, if you are an entry level structural engineer, or a seasoned veteran, this CFSEI lecture is intended to provide a fundamental understanding of the some of the behavior and design principles for cold-formed steel members and connections. Roger will draw on lecture materials used in his semester course and three-day short course to explain the unique aspects of cold-formed steel behavior and design principles of AISI S100.

Presenter: Roger A. LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E.Dr. Roger A. LaBoube is Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and former director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures (CCFSS) at the Missouri University of Science & Technology, formerly known as the University of Missouri-Rolla. 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; wall studs; and bolt, weld, and screw connections. Dr. LaBoube is active in several professional organizations and societies, including membership on the American Iron and Steel Institute’s (AISI) Committee on Specifications and as chairman of AISI’s Committee on Framing Standards. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Missouri. Dr. LaBoube is a frequent presenter of CFSEI webinars, answers questions from engineers through the CFSEI Hotline, and remains active in developing cold-formed steel standards through the AISI Committee on Framing Standards.

Webinar on Post-Installed Anchor Testing, Qualification, and Design Procedure
Webinar on Post-Installed Anchor Testing, Qualification, and Design Procedure

Continuing Education Credits Available – 1.5 PDH Credits

Structural and non-structural elements are often connected to concrete structures by means of concrete anchors. Anchors are either cast-in the concrete during construction, or post-installed when the concrete has cured. There are various concrete anchor types with different behavioral characteristics. The designer must select the type, size and embedment most suitable for the given situation. Due to the large diversity in product types and makes, anchors are not standardized and products need to be qualified for their intended use. For this, suitability and serviceability tests on individual anchors are carried out in independent test laboratories. Evaluation of the test results ultimately result in the issuing of technical approvals which also provide the necessary data to carry out safe anchor design. In this webinar, the process for testing and qualification of post installed anchors, relevant building code and acceptance criteria will be discussed along with the design procedure, failure modes, and the factors affecting the failure mode.

Webinar on Practical Allyship – 5 Actions Anyone Can Do to Promote Inclusion at Work
Webinar on Practical Allyship – 5 Actions Anyone Can Do to Promote Inclusion at Work

Continuing Education Credits Available – 1.5 PDH Credits

Creating an inclusive work environment is not just the “right thing to do.” Inclusive behaviors are tied to higher levels of individual performance and firm profits; yet creating and working in an inclusive work environment often feels elusive, as evidenced by the fact that almost two-thirds of workers are disengaged at work.
In this interactive session, you will learn about the business case for inclusive work cultures and five simple actions anyone can take to create a more inclusive work environment for those they work with, regardless of current role or firm size. Applicable to everyone from new graduates to CEOs, these strategies have been shown to create a more inclusive work environment while requiring little time or budget to implement. When implemented consistently, these strategies create better work cultures for everyone and improve the retention of coworkers in traditionally marginalized gender, racial, and ethnic groups. You will leave this session empowered with specific actions you can immediately apply to engineer inclusion in your everyday interactions.
