Michael Gray and I were asked to prepare a piece for the American Institute of Steel Construction’s Product Expert Series on Steel Castings for Structural Applications. This article ran in the January 2013 Issue of Modern Steel Construction. Questions covered include:
– When does the cost of casting a connection make economic sense?
– How does one go about designing and analyzing an arbitrarily shaped steel component like a casting?
– What considerations must be made with respect to lead time when specifying customized cast connections?
– What should be covered in a casting specification?
