Title: double angle conn
gentlemen. I agree and feel that AISC Chapter J is quite
My interpretation is
that AISC in Chapter J says that welds and bolts can only share load if the
bolts are slip critical. I would consider this condition falling exactly
under that limitation since they share the beam reaction. The weld must
carry the entire load (and hence the clip angle which is welded also) unless
you can make the bolts slip critical.

Re: double angle conn
The 1/16th inch gap in the bolt
hole will make all the difference in where the load goes. Since there is
no slack in the weld, 100% of the load will go in the welded angle. If
and when that fails, 100% of the load will go to the bolted angle. I do
not believe you can figure both angles will be working

a double angle connection of a floor beam to a supporting floor girder, are
there any issues with one of the angles being field bolted, while the other
is field welded? The erector had to modify some connections (approved
by fabricator) in this fashion. Is it safe to design each angle to
receive half of the beam reaction?
