Error in Aisc Manual 13th Edition?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Kind Attention: Charlie Carter /Scott Melnick of AISC.

Thanks to all at Aisc for the great new 13th Edition.
I simply loved it.

Here's something I noticed.

See page 10-14 (All bolted double angle connections)
For 11 rows of 3/4" dia A490 SC OVS holes for 1/4"
thick clip angle the table lists a capacity of 80 kips
only under the green ASD column.

I feel this is a printing mistake.
Shouldn't it be 180 kips ?

Please confirm.

If I am right,  please let me know if this and any
other error has been noticed and an "Errata" has been
issued recently.

In any case, I am sure this error would not have
affected any one so far.
This combination (11 rows of 3/4" dia A490 SC Class B
OVS with 1/4" clip angle is higly unlikely to have
been used by any one). 

If I am wrong, and the value of 80 kips is indeed
correct, I would welcome an explanation of why it is
so low for this case only when compared to values
listed on other pages and also when compared to the
blue LRFD values listed alongside.

Regards
Vish
