Lloyd,I experienced such results before and that was exactly for a low-rise moment resisting frame. I have a great book titled "Design and Construction of Base Plates" in Persian language. If you want it, let me know and I'll send you a copy of appropriate pages of that. I can provide some notes on them and you'll be able to use it. It's free for you!

Date: Mon, 1 Nov 1999 21:15:47 -0800 I'm wanting to get opinions on calculating base plate thicknesses on moment resisting frames and braced frames. When in school I used the text "Steel structures" by Gaylord, Gaylord and Stalmayer, (I believe). Anyway, that book has some examples of base plate design where the plate must transfer moment. Recently I was working on a rigid frame in a house, and used the method in the book to size my base plate. I got a base plate thickness of 2", which seems rather large. Which methods do any of you use to calculate the thickness of your base plates? When I looked through the AISC ASD Manual I found little help on the subject? Are these plates really supposed to be this thick? Any suggestions and guidance would be appreciated. Thank you, Lloyd Pack
