When designing ‘big box’ buildings, engineers
sometimes (at least in this area of
In discussion with a local engineer, I find his position on the matter is “it is the fabricators responsibility to determine if stiffeners are required and supply them, if needed”. His position on this matter is similar to beam/column moment connections; the design of column flange and web stiffeners is also the fabricators responsibility. His thinking is that this area falls under the scope of connection design.
If the engineering drawings provided loads, I would be inclined to agree with this position but most engineers don’t supply them so it is impossible to any calcs. Also, the majority of engineers around here will not provide any loads when asked. I think their insurance providers tell them not to.
In many states, connection design must accompany the contract documents but for those jurisdictions that do not, what are your views? Do you leave these tasks up to the bidder or fabricator?
