Eccentric Beam To Column Connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was having E-mail problems recenlty and wasn't sure if this message had
made it to the list. If so, I 
apologize for the repeat message. 


I recently designed a beam to column connection where the beam is offset
from 
> the column web centerline and the beam is connected to the column flange
> via 
> a single plate and welds(i.e., the beam web is vertically aligned with the
> 
> column flange). The welds and connector plate have been designed for 
> eccentricity. The column has also been analyzed for the combined axial
> load 
> and eccentric moment. The project engineer responsible for accepting the 
> connection calc's is insisting that I provide additional calc's which show
> 
> how the beam reaction is transferred from the column flange to the column 
> web. My position is that since the column has been designed for the
> eccentric 
> load, the additional calc's are unnecessary. Am I missing something?
