FW: WF Sections Not in Manual

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

A check of the January issue of Modern Steel Construction shows your W27x281
section listed as being produced only by Nucor.  This might be the reason it
is not in the steel manual.  It might be prudent to check availability, or
there could be schedule implications.

    Does anyone know why the W27x281 - and some other shapes - do not appear
the 2nd Edition of the LRFD?  They do appear in the 1st Edition of the LRFD
in the ASD books.  Have some of the less popular shapes been phased out
recently?  I'm looking at some shop drawings with that section, and no one
complained about it... at least not yet...

P.S. No, I don't mean to continue the LRFD versus ASD discussion with a
shapes" thread - just wondering where my W27x281 went.
