RE: Fillet Welds on face of column

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Oshin,

Your question brings another condition to mind.  

If stiffeners are not used between the column flange and web, can the column
flange be considered rigid?  Another way of stating this is, is stress in
the fillet weld uniform across the face of the column flange?

AISC Table J2.5 lists allowable stress on welds for various types of welds.
Fillet weld has two types. a) Shear on effective area, and b) Tension or
compression parallel to axis of weld.  How do you discribe each in terms of
real world applications?

Also, when a cantilever beam is welded with a fillet weld all around to a
column, would you consider the weld at the tension flange subject to
horizontal shear or tension perpendicular to the weld axis (not listed in
AISC Table J2.5) in addition to the vertical shear.

Thanks in advance
