In the latest Modern Steel Construction issue, I saw that the normal plates
available are A36.

Subject: Steel Plate Availability
I have some large industrial steel structures that will be utilizing
Concentric Braced Frames. The bracing gusset plates will be given special
design attention and I would like to keep the thickness down by using 50
plate. Is 50 ksi plate readily available in the 3/8 inch through 1 inch
OR should I keep life simple and just stay with A36 plate??
