This is Part 2 of the Design of Welds and Welded Connections for Engineers Course focus on the design of welding. The course may also be purchased as Parts 1 & 2 combined, which provides a fully holistic understanding of the complete design and fabrication requirements.
Design of Welds and Welded Connections for Engineers Part 2
Welding is one of the most important and technical aspects of steelwork fabrication. Welded connections are critical to the strength and stability of structural steel frames. It is not alarmist to suggest that the failure of one welded connection can seriously compromise the ability for a structure to resist the design loading and may even cause failure of the structure. Both the engineer’s and fabricator’s understanding of welding practice and how that relates to design outcomes is therefore of paramount importance.
The course comprises two separate but related parts:
Part 1 – The companion course examines the implementation of the welding process, covering the pros and cons of different welding processes, in particular those commonly utilised for structural steel. Welding inspection, documentation and quality control are also extensively covered, providing the engineer a very good understanding of what is required to ensure the welded structure meets the performance intent of AS/NZS 1554, AS/NZS 5131, AS 4100 and the national Construction Code.

Part 2 – This current course explores the design of welds and welded connections as one might find typically in steel framed industrial buildings or commercial and residential buildings. We will be looking at procurement perspectives, basic weld strength, weld group design and the important behavioural aspects. Parts 1 and 2 of this course may be purchased and undertaken separately, for those who need to focus on either implementation or design respectively. The course may also be purchased as Parts 1 & 2 combined, which provides a fully holistic understanding of the complete design and fabrication requirements.
