Lloyd, Chances are if you have base plates getting this thick you may want to look at placing channels at the base of the columns to assist in transferring the moment from the anchor bolts directly to the column (thereby eliminating the need for such a thick base plate). Take a look at the book "Design of Welded Structures", by Omer Blodgett (the man of steel). Chapter 3 gets into this type of heavy-duty moment design at the base of columns although its basic ASD design stuff. Hope this helps. Robert C.

When I looked through the AISC ASD Manual I found little help on the subject? Are these plates really supposed to be this thick? <snip>
