AISC Basic Design Values

Course Outline

American Institute of Steel Construction published an easy-to-use Basic Design Values Card for engineers to quickly find the useful equations in design. These equations are derived or simplified from those in the ANSI/AISC 360-16, Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, 2016 Edition. This course provides engineers the background information of the equations contained in the Card so that engineers can have a better understanding and hence fully and effectively utilize the Card in their design work.
