Re: FEMA-350 Table 3-5

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think it's correct. It is for a welded free flange connection - there is nothing that would force the hinge further away from the column face ( like a cover plate or intentional weakness away from the connection).

Also, the erratta has a correction for table 3-5, but not for that value.

My copy of FEMA-350 shows the location of plastic hinge at dsub c / 2 +1sub p in Table 3-5.

All other tables show this equation to be (dsub c + dsub b) / 2.

Anyone know if  the equation in Table 3-5 contains a typo?
