SCI Member Webinar – Hollow sections – Part 1

124
Business Office, Corporate building London City, England

18 October 2022.

Timing: 12:30 – 13:30

This webinar will show how hollow sections are structurally efficient, and are often preferred when steelwork with architectural appeal is exposed.  Although considered to be more expensive that open sections, there are many circumstances when hollow sections should be specified.

This first presentation will cover the different manufacturing routes for hot finished and cold formed hollow sections – and why careful specification is important and substitution is not straightforward. The use of hollow sections to resist torsion will be demonstrated, including the calculation of twist. The design guidance for truss analysis will be discussed.

The second part of the presentation (Scheduled for 13th December 2022) will cover the connections of hollow sections – including bolted options and the resistance rules for welded joints in EN 1993-1-8.
