Re: base plate design for tube and pipe columns

There is AISC Column Base Plates Steel Design Guide. On page 16 there is
recommendation which states that: Base plates for rectangular columns and
round pipe columns can be designed by the provisions developed for wide
flange shape columns. Providing that the critical section to determine the
plate thickness shall be based on 0.95 times the outside column dimension
for rectangular column and 0.8 times the outside dimension for round
column.

I hope this was helpful
