Efficient Design of HSS Connections


Designing with HSS members is advantageous for a variety of reasons. However, designing HSS connections present a unique set challenges that designers may not be familiar with compared to open section connection design. These challenges, such as unique limit states and difficulty strengthening an HSS, add complexity to the overall design. In this webinar, the Steel Tube Institute (STI) and RISA will outline guidelines when considering HSS connections while educating designers on how to design the most economical steel tube connections.
