This course covers the design of column base plates and beam bearing plates based on the AISC Steel Construction Manual, 13th edition. No prior knowledge of previous codes is necessary.

This course should be of particular interest to Civil and Structural Engineers. The course will show how to design a column base plate based on its strength limit state found in section J8 of the specification. It will show how to design a beam bearing plate based on three limits states. One is found in section J8 and two are in section J10 of the specification. The two in section J10 are for web local yielding and web crippling of the beam. The course will also show how Excel could be used to design beam bearing plates.
