Presentation Outline: Singly-symmetric sections such as C-sections require bracing to stabilize them from torsional effects. This webinar will take us back to our roots and review the applicable AISI S100 and S211 design provisions for flexural members, i.e. wall studs or joists, with a focus on design requirements for both lateral-torsional buckling and torsion. Bracing considerations for achieving overall stability will also be discussed.
The day before the webinar, participants will have access to electronic versions of the following:
Who Should Attend?
This webinar is for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors.
Speaker: Dr. Roger A. LaBoube is Curator’s Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering, Director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). Dr. LaBoube holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. Dr. LaBoube 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 to include: cold-formed steel beams, panels, trusses, headers, wall studs as well as bolt, weld, and screw connections. Dr. LaBoube is member of the American Iron and Steel Institute’s Committee on Specifications for the North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and a member of the AISI Committee on Framing Standards. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in Missouri.
