RE: FPW - HSS column splice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

First, I guess, I’m not sure how a full pen weld can be done on a tube section.  I think that question has come up on the list before.  Second, where I am you can’t be assured of what quality of welder will be on the project.

 

If there are any other ideas, I would be happy to hear them.

Joe,

 

Why not do a full pen weld of the two sections?

Subject: HSS column splice

 

I'm doing a column splice detail.  I'm told that lengths over 20' in a 5x5 tube steel aren't available around here.  The splice will be just above a floor diaphragm, and I will be able to block the column into the floor framing pretty well.  I’m considering using a sleeve from a section of HSS that is larger than the column section.

 

Anyway, will an HSS 5x5 fit inside an HSS 5.5x5.5x1/4 sleeve?  Has anybody else out there done this?

Joe
