Re: AISC Code of Standard Practice

Dan:

I am going to play dumb...section 7.11.3.1 does not existing in the AISC
Code of Standard Practice that I have.  Of course, I am looking at the one
dated March 7, 2000.  This might actually help you, as it seems that the
apparent conflict may have been eliminated.

HTH,
