Min web thickness

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

Hi,
Chap 9 pg 5 of the "AISC  Steel Construction Manua" l under" CONNECTING ELEMENT RUPTURE STRENGTH AT WELDS " gives a formula for the minimum thickness of webs.

Any idea why the formula is based on the actual size of weld provided and not on the calculated size required.

Is it practical to provide 3mm fillet welds on either side of a 6mm thick web in an end plate connection?

Thanks
S.Sehdev
