Re: base plate design for tube and pipe columns

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

See the AISC Hollow Structural Sections Connection Manual, page 7-9 for base
plates with axial load only.

If you have moment, see the HSS Manual and work it with the article by Drake and
Elkin in the January, 1999 Engineering Journal.

Subject:  base plate design for tube and pipe columns

Does anyone have an AISC approved method or a method outlined in other
literature for the design of tube or pipe steel base plates.
