As part of Lincoln Electric’s Blodgett Design Seminars, its Design of Welded Connections: Steel Structures seminar will now take a closer look at AWS D1.5 code standards, in addition to traditional courses. The structural seminar will take place from October 24 to 28 at Welding technology and training center in Cleveland, Ohio.

The seminar offers 36 hours of instruction over a full week of training, for 3.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for those who design and construct steel structures such as buildings, bridges, towers and similar structures. Typical attendees include structural engineers, fabricators, erectors and inspectors. During the sessions, participants will review connections subjected to static, cyclic and seismic loading.

“In the past, we have focused on the AISC 360 and AWS D1.1 standards to support various engineering principles presented in the course,” said Curt Decker, Principal Structural Engineer at Lincoln Electric, “The Adding more in-depth AWS D1.5 discussions expands our training to cover a broader structural scope, especially in light of the infrastructure issues that are at the forefront across the country.

Seminar courses include such things as the basics of the welding process, welding metallurgy and cracking, basics of welded joints, fracture mechanics, joint design principles, and practical solutions to common construction challenges. , in addition to other structural matters. Attendees will have hands-on welding opportunities and demonstrations of additive and automation solutions to replenish the stock of new ideas and will visit Lincoln Electric.

The $900 seminar fee includes seminar sessions, lunches, one evening dinner, and daily hotel shuttle.
