New SiCA lecture! Welded connections

Our newest lecture – Generalities on welded connections - is part of the ‘Connection design: static loading’ series in our Steel in Construction Academy.

Where there are favourable working conditions, welding is the most economical way to make strong connections. Types and descriptions of welds are covered in this lecture, in addition to mechanical properties of materials, edge preparation and fit-up, and weld quality.
