Re: Structural Welding (try again)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Our preliminary solution is to bolt two channels to web of the existing beam at both the floor and the roof.  The connection will extend far enough to form a moment connection.  Once we get into final design, we may uncover more problems.
Thanks to all who responded.

I, and some others, did answer.  Probably didn't make it back to you.
I would avoid any welding, if possible.  Instead look at a bolted upgrade solution such as splicing two new (full length?) channels to the sides and bolting. 
Whatever the solution I would want to "recreate" the original design with an (hybrid) equivalent, where I couldn't do a direct replacement.
