RE: Single Plate Connection of Collectors Procedure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would hope that building officials don't expect every possible situation
to be covered by a steel, concrete, timber, masonry, or building code.
Doesn't the PE stamp mean something?

Thanks.  It would be useful to try and add a code provision or have
something published.  Without something published, I could see this holding
up a permit.

      There is no codified approach to this. I would use an elliptical
      interaction approach. That is, I'd calculate as follows. First,
      calculate the thickness required to resist the shear only in block
      shear. Then, calculate the thickness required to resist the tension
      only in block shear. The total required thickness would then be the
      square root of the sum of the squares of those thicknesses.
