AISC Steel Sculptures are Valuable Tools in Education

AISC Steel Sculptures are Valuable Tools in Education

Duane Ellifritt, professor emeritus from the University of Florida, originally created the AISC Steel Sculpture as a visual teaching aid. The sculpture is composed of 25 steel members, 43 connection elements, more than 26 weld groups, and more than 144 individual bolts. These Steel Sculptures exemplify the many methods of steel framing and their corresponding connections.

The Steel Sculpture provides a true visual understanding of steel framing and connections, and more than 100 U.S. colleges and universities are home to such sculptures. To learn more about the AISC Steel Sculpture and see a list of campuses with one, click here.
