Cutting structural steel at site

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A girt that is attached to a column via steel plates is too long.
 
The contractor is requesting cutting the welded  plate at one end by torching it.  The girt will also be cut by a torch to the required length.  The girt will  be welded to the plate and then will be connected  to the column by bolts.
 
 
What are your thoughts please about torching the end of the girts where the lateral loads will pass thru the torched cross section to the column.
 
Or what is the loss to the steel grade.
 
 
Thanks,
 
John
