Marketing Text SKILLS is a set of 16 training modules which offer practical guidance in the application of the Eurocodes for single storey steel building design. The aim of this material is to assist designers in France, Poland and Spain to meet changes in working practices by providing user friendly training materials aligned to national annexes and in national languages. All modules are presented as Microsoft Powerpoint slides with accompanying notes.
Description The design process of a pinned base-plate connection under axial and shear forces is described in this module. Several figures show typical structural details in order to explain the function of each component of the connection (base plate, anchor bolts, shear nib, etc.) A detailed worked example is also included.
Target group SKILLS modules are intended for use by graduate students and employees of steel fabricators, construction companies, design offices and regulators, together with their teachers and training providers. These resources provide end users with practical guidance and examples to illustrate and demonstrate basic principles and theoretical concepts to ensure effective application of the Eurocodes for steel design of single storey buildings.
