Re: HSS connection manual

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The Hollow Structural Sections Connections Manual has a black cover.  It is a
stand alone manual similar in format to the ASD and LRFD Manuals.  The section
properties are for sections that were produced in 1997.  Section properties
differ from those in both the ASD and LRFD Manuals because they are calculated
based on the "Design Wall Thickness" which is 93% of the "Nominal Wall
Thickness".  The manual's HSS specification is a supplement to the LRFD

Subject:  HSS connection manual

Does the HSS connection manual include tables of additional HSS sections
not found in the steel manual, or is this a separate publication?  I've
seen reference on the list of a "black book" for HSS, and I was
wondering if these are two different publications.
