Robert, Flame cutting with a hand-held torch can replace one re-entrant corner with a whole bunch of re-entrant corners which would have to be ground smooth. Can a section of the web with the re-entrant corner be cut out and shop fabricated pieces with properly radiused corners welded in with full pen welds? A. Roger Turk, P.E.(Structural) Tucson, Arizona Robert Rogers wrote: >>We have a situation were some beams were fabricated and were not appropriately cut (in the web) with a nice radius (i.e, the nasty reentrant corner). Unfortunately a lot of these beams have been put in place and the contractor is wondering if he can "fix-it" in the field. Does anybody have any ideas how this can be handled ? Does AISC have any position on a method of correcting this problem after initial fabrication ? Thanks in Advance Robert Rogers, PE<<
