Re: Flitch Beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have done many examples of flitch beams, mainly using equivalent section fundamentals.  There is some debate on the true compatibility (or incompatibility) inherent in the hybrid interfaces.  I have addressed (to my satisfaction) these concerns with detailed investigations into the inter-material connecting devices (bolting etc).  Look at the substantial discourse back awhile in the archives.  Review some of those comments before proceeding.
