FEMA / AISC Moment Frames

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We have begun using the new AISC moment frame standard.  Recently, we have used the Unstiffened End Plate detail per FEMA.  FEMA requires a maximum beam depth of W24 for SMRF's (see table 3-8).  The new AISC spec sets a minimum beam size of 25" for the "4E" connection (see table 6.1).  What gives?  Is there a typo somewhere?
