Atlas Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group, Chicago, has released the second part of its ongoing educational video series on steel hollow structural sections (HSS), "Designing with HSS." The new installment features videos about HSS connections.
The new installment starts with a video called "Intro to HSS Connections," which discusses the various types of connections and the challenges involved when designing with HSS. Atlas Tube Senior Sales Engineer Brad Fletcher speaks to HSS connections and other technical topics regarding steel HSS.
The videos explain that the local strength of HSS members is an integral part of HSS connection design, that member selection affects the HSS connection design, and that reinforcing connections often is not an option because of architectural or fabrication restraints.
The new installment is available on JMC Steel Group's YouTube channel, at www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMtEvY7REbM&feature=youtu.be.
