This course covers the design of steel beams based on the AISC Steel Construction Manual, 13th edition. No prior knowledge of previous codes is necessary. This course would be of particular interest to Civil and Structural Engineers. The author attended a steel seminar on this new manual when it first came out and there were about 200 people in attendance. Only about 5% were using this new manual. I hope to improve that number with this course. Steel is a recyclable material.
