RE: Eccentric Loads on Welds

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thor,

Treat the welds as line elements and calculate section modulus for. Section
properties of various weld groups can be found in handbooks: circular, two
vertical lines, 2 horizontal lines etc..

Calculate normal and shear forces, then translate into how the code checks
the combination. Here older codes checked transverse and longitudinal
actions on different shear planes in the weld, current codes largely ignore
and check against a single resistance.
