Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Steel Beam Design , you'll learn ...

  • Types of loads and load combinations by LRFD and ASD
  • How the calculations are done by LRFD and ASD
  • What are some of the limit states like strength, buckling, shear and deflection in beam design
  • Classification of sections as compact, non-compact or slender-element

To meet the Ohio Board's intent that online courses be "paced" by the provider, a timer will be used to record your study time. You will be unable to access the quiz until the required study time of 100 minutes has been met.

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.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Types of loads and load combinations by LRFD and ASD
  • How the calculations are done by LRFD and ASD
  • What are some of the limit states like strength, buckling, shear and deflection in beam design
  • Classification of sections as compact, non-compact or slender-element
  • An illustration of a computer beam design program

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
