RE: single plate shear connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Look in the HSS design manual by AISC and they cover this. They have
examples of connection of this type and have limitations on load based upon
wall thickness and dimensions of the tube.

	Please correct me if I am wrong - and it is likely
	that I am but it seems to me that there is a lot of
	concern over whether or not you can weld a single
	shear plate to an HSS face or not but there doesn't
	seem to be the same concern when this type of plate is
	being welded to a wide flange column web.  If I look
	at the examples in the two green books, they are
	silent about what the connection is connecting into. 
	Is this covered somewhere else?
	Thanks again,
	Ken Peoples
