An integral part of building codes in the United States, ASCE 7 is vital in the daily practice of civil engineers, building officials, and architects. ASCE 7 Online provides a faster, easier way for engineers to work with ASCE 7.
The SEI Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program provides structural engineers with the tools and resources necessary to contribute and track projects toward the vision of net-zero embodied carbon structures by 2050.
Gusset plates connect weight-bearing beams and girders to columns on bridges, buildings and other structures. To minimize failure of this important connection, the connections to the beam and column must be stronger than the braces themselves.
A new study in the Journal of Structural Engineering, "Incorporating Frame Action into Seismic Design of Gusset Plates" by Yao Cui, Ph.D., A.M.ASCE; Xiaozhuo Xu; Tracy C. Becker, Ph.D.,...
