Butt-Plated Column Splices

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
LRFD Volume II page 11-69 gives typical butt plate thickness as 1 1/2" for W8 
over W10, and 2" for others. Is there any method to calculate the required 
thickness? What about same column splice (same cross sections above & below) 
where no bending is introduce in the butt plate!?

Thanks!
