Re: Joist Girder Connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Richard,

Forgive me if I am reading your question incorrectly, but isn't the typical
knife plate connection you refer to for stability only, not a moment
connection.  In my experience the plate is not attached to the girder bottom
chord at all.
