RE: AISC Shapes: k_det vs. k_des

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Charlie Carter has discussed this in a previous post, from which the following is copied;

<qoute on>
The fractional value is for detailing and is based upon the largest fillet
reported to AISC in the survey we do of steel producers. Thus, the steel
will fit up no matter from which producer it is purchased. The decimal value
is for design and is based upon the smallest fillet reported to AISC in the
survey. Thus, the steel will have the minimum strength predicted no matter
from which producer it is purchased.

This may seem like a silly question, but why in the world is the detailing
value for "k" so much different than the design values for "k"?  Refer to
most Wide Flanged Shapes, primarily W14s, LRFD 3rd Edition.

Thanks,
