RE: shear lug

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

We typically use an L or Single plate welded to the bottom of the base plate.  Then design it as a “cantilever beam”.

Depending on the space constraints, can you place an embed plate with shear studs, then place the column with plates or angles on 4 sides, welded?  Access hole provided for grout...  Anchor bolts project above.  A lot of coordination, but not impossible.

Good morning,


Need to resist an unfactored shear force of about 38K at the baseplate level, anchor bolts not an option, thinking about embedding an HSS (say, 8x8x1/2).

Any ideas, suggestions, references for shear lug design?
