RE: HSS column splice

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

My thought is that to get a decent weld that the walls would be pretty thick then there would be the same problems as using the 5.5x5.5 and maybe worse.

Why not just use an HSS 6x6 sleeve instead?

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?
