Title: RE: Transitions at welded splices

I think the written words (last paragraph on LRFD Vol II page 10-58, which continues on to page 10-59) that go along with that Figure spell out the requirements for splice transitions in wind and low-seismic applications (R <= 3). For high -seismic applications (R > 3), there are specific requirements regarding transitions in the AISC Seismic Provisions.

Also, some of the items you listed below are for transitions withing connection elements, not flange or similar splices. That is not the same case as a splice somewhere out in the length of a girder. Did I misunderstand what you were asking?
