The Steel Tube Institute (STI) will host a webinar on "Fire Protection of Hollow Structural Sections" on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. CDT. During the hour-long learning opportunity, STI will review the fire protection benefits of hollow structural sections (HSS). By attending the webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the effects of fire on steel in general and at what temperature an HSS section is affected.
- Learn about the required resistance time and the methods that can be used to achieve it.
- State the equations needed to calculate the fire resistance of an HSS member.
- Describe how concrete filled HSS provide an aesthetically pleasing answer to HSS fire resistance and how this resistance can be calculated.
STI webinars include 1 AIA Accredited PDH per registrant. Fee for joining is $95 and registration is available here. Participation is free for Professional Members of STI who enjoy discounts on HSS design guides and six webinars per year for just $125. Details about membership can be found here.
