RE: Geometry of haunch for moment connection

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

Hmmm, I don’t know, I used Blodgett for a graduate steel coarse report on just this topic and got a C for the mere reason that the information was “dated”

So according to at least that* professor the answer is NO! …freakin Ph.D’s

Can we refer to the book by Blodget for this?

Dear all,

The question is regarding haunch for moment connection for welded steel connection.

Normally we provide angle for the haunch as 30 to 35 degree and length of haunch as 0.5 to 0.6 times depth of beam.

Can we increase the angle to 45 degree for the same length of haunch ( as mentioned above).

Kindly give your opinion.
