braced frame omega nought

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I apologize if this has already been covered, but I am confused on how far
to use omega nought in braced frame designs.  If I understand the code
correctly, the braces and the connections should be designed with omega
nought.  The footing does not.

What happens at the brace / column interface at the footing?  Does the
column's baseplate or the baseplate's anchor bolts get designed with omega
nought?

Thank you in advance.
