Fwd: connection between double angles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

     Does anybody know what type of weld would be used to connect 
     back-to-back double angles to be used as a compression member?  It 
     doesn't seem like a fillet weld would be applicable because there is 
     no corner.  Also, section E4 (Built-Up Members) of the ASD Manual 
     states that intermittent welds in built-up members shall be adequate 
     to provide for the transfer of calculated stress.  Does this mean that 
     the sum of the intermittent weld strengths must be able to resist the 
     design axial load applied along the longitudinal axis of the member?
     Thanks in advance for your response,
     John Hubert, P.E.
