AISC steel camp

AISC steel camp

(OP)
Has anyone ever been to the AISC steel camp?  If so, could you share your opinion on whether is it worth traveling to and spending a couple days at.

If it gets you away from a screaming wife and a bunch of kids --- you figure it out!!

RE: AISC steel camp

I've been and I enjoyed it.  Although, I think it may largely depend on your exposure to that type of work.

From what I remember (when I took it in California)-- Day 1 was focused on walking through AISC Design Guide 5 with seismic considerations.

Day 2 was focused on steel moment frame design / detailing, new engineering products (i.e. BRBFs and self straightening structures (brace with footings that can uplift and a pre-tensioned cable to self right the structure after an earthquake) and things like that.

I found it educational and really enjoyed it.  However, we don't do a lot of this type of work.  If you do it everyday it may be basic.
