Title: RE: tube brace

Yes, it applies to squares as well. A square is just a geometrically special case of a rectangle.

greetings esteemed group,
a quick question of code interpretation
sec. 2213.8.2.5 limits b/t ratio for tube braces. It says RECTANGULAR tubes.
We are debating whether the code means all tubes or tubes that are not
square i.e. a rectangle. AISC uses 190/root Fy generically.
thanks
matt Jordan
