NOTICE! BE VERY CAREFUL USING THESE OLD EXAMS. THE AISC STEEL MANUAL HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY IN MANY RESPECTS, ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF BOLTS.
Please note that this course changes from year to year. Thus this year we may cover connections on Quiz A, while last year Quiz A covered tension members. Sometimes, material is completely removed from the course and something else takes its place. Thus, don’t get upset if you never heard of something you see on one of these old quizzes. It’s possible that we just no longer cover it, or that we will cover it on a different exam. Yes, I realize that some of the exams say “See the board for the figures.” Sorry, I forgot to bring the board back to my office back in 2000. Yes I realize that some of the material on the exam is missing, or incorrect. It was corrected on the board during the exam – the same board that I forgot to bring back with me after the exam. Yes, I realize that the method of calculating Cb has changed since I last taught the material. We will use the new way of calculating it from now on.
Note that in the Miscellaneous Exams, Solutions, etc, I have thrown all kinds of junk from my files, half of which you can’t read, nor can I. I really hesitate to give you these, but look them over if you like. Many are so old that the LRFD Code methods have changed dramatically. For example, the equation for Cb has changed, as have other things. BE CAREFUL! NOT FOR THE CASUAL STUDENT! In fact, during the Fall 2006 semester the whole code changed, and most of the solutions shown here would now be considered incorrect. Thus use these simply as a guide to the types of questions you will probably be asked.
What you see is what you get.
Of highest importance to your continued use of this material: DO NOT bring any of these problems by my office and ask me to solve them for you, or they will be immediately removed from distribution. You can take them to the tutor or to your friends, but I simply do not have time for each of you to individually bring each of these problems by my office and solve them for you. There simply is not enough time during the semester to have each of you come by with each problem and ask that you be shown how to work it individually. No way. I am happy to let you see my old exams, such as they are, to determine the types of problems I gave in the past, and you are welcome to get together and work them out. But the first person who asks me ANYTHING about any one of these exams will cause this resource to immediately disappear, and their name will be posted here:
On __________________, Mr/Ms ____________________ brought an old exam to me and asked if one of the numbers shown was a 1 or a 5. For this reason the old exams have been removed and are henceforth considered contraband. Possession of this material is now considered illegal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. They will be reinstated in 10 years, when it is hoped that the students are better at following the rules.
Grading Example – why I know I am being consistent on what to take off after 20 hours of grading.
