Re: Common column with braces

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There are some design examples out there where short lengths of Tees cut from the same shape as the column are welded into the column to create a cruciform section locally. I would have to do some searching but if you can't find anything, I will descend to the depths of my basement to look for references.

directions into a common wide flange column section. And, without the need of fabricating a cruciform column shape.

Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
