Re: Brace connection

First of all, what is it???  EBF, OCBF, SCBF?? Once you get thru the alphabet soup you need AISC341-05, and AISC358-05.  There is also a 2005 provisions seminar booklet from AISC which was put on by Rafael Sabelli a Structural Engineer in SF (which by the way was excellent, if you missed it)  I would hesitate referencing anything before that time, because I know in many areas it is different.  If you are no longer using the 97 UBC, or if you are using the IBC, I would follow the above.  I think these are available for downloading from the AISC website. (I would also buy a good spreadsheet to check the work, it will save you loads of time, particularly if you are designing connections)

In UBC ?97 section 2214.6.3 ? Bracing connections shall be designed for the lesser of the following?.. (I don?t have

a UBC ?97 reference in my hand I just based it from my old calc.).


Currently, the project I?m working on is based on 2003 IBC.  Does anybody know where to refer the above in IBC?
