Title: Moments in wood structures
This is what I thought but new things keep coming down the
pike. I also talked with Simpson and they do not have a moment resistance
connection. Guess I will have to tell the client to get the city engineer
to sign and stamp the drawings.
It is not likely that either or both top and
bottom hardware elements on the post will develop enough restraint to be
considered as a moment resistant frame element even if the bolts are installed
in properly sized holes and tightened properly, due to wood

Subject: Moments in wood
A city engineer told a
client that he would sign off on a patio with Simpson CB at the bottom and
Simpson CC at the top of six wood columns. Patio is 20' X 40' with two
rows of three columns. Wood beams connect the six columns. As
there are no shear walls or braces at least one of these connections, top or
bottom must be moment resistant. I have not been able to find any EER
or other data showing these connections will take moment. If any one
know of any information this hardware making moment connections in wood
share it with me.
