This session will introduce casting parts in contrast with fabricated structural steel and other metals. We will also explain the casting processes and the unique advantages that cast metal will bring to architectural and structural applications. Audiences will leave with a knowledge of cast metal grades and alloys, as well as their applications.
- Present the application of the casting parts for HSS structural connections, bridge construction, timber structures, truss and bracing applications.
- Review fatigue sensitive joints and eliminating difficult welding.
