It's about time for some discussion on structural steel design. In the August "Modern Steel Construction", the following question is raised: "In the design of braces for axial forces, gusset plates are connected to the flat surface of the flanges of WT sections. Should the effect of eccentricity be considered in the design of braces? If eccentricity is to be considered, what procedure is to be followed?" Per the AISC Specifications, ASD J1.9 or LRFD J1.8, you can neglect the eccentricity in the design of the member if the members are statically loaded. No mention is made of the design of the connecting plates, bolts, and welds. Blodgett's Design of Welded Structures recommends that you design the member for the eccentricity if the attaching plate is flexible and you design the plate for the eccentricity if the attaching plate is rigid. Any thoughts? Rick Drake, SE ...
