Fw: HSS Corner Radius

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
For HSS shapes designations, dimensions and properties see pp 1-7 to 1-10 of the Hollow Structural Sections Connections Manual and in addition the AISC Specifications for the Design of Steel Hollow Structural Sections.
For additional dimensions and properties refer to manufacturers' catalogs.
Hope this helps.

What do you use for the inside and outside radius for rectangular / square HSS?    The manual says the outside corner shall not exceed 3 times the wall thickness.
I have been drawing them using 2x the wall thickness for the outside radius, and 1x the wall thickness for the inside.  I know the inside radius is not quite right.
