Yes, Blodgett “Design of Welded Structures”  is probably one of the best.  And it is relatively cheap $10.00.

Hello all:

I'm looking for any references for designing column base plates where the column base is subjected to uplift and a large moment.

The AISC design guide does not discuss a column base with moment in combination with uplift.

Does anybody have any references for such a design?

Thanks in advance,

Andry Heigley, PE
