In the petrochemical business, it is quite common to see structural steel braces built from WT shapes. If you like Table 4-12 in the AISC 15th Edition, then you might like the attached example plots which I built on the same principle. AISC 15th Edition LRFD maximum axial capacities in kips; KL in feet Maximum […]
Detailing matters! Original design vs Actual fabrication STRUCTURE Magazine August 2016
In this post, I provide derivations for the rotation angles between planes. We have two formulas: An exact formula [Eq 1] An approximate (easy and sufficient) formula [Eq 2] My link to my calculations Link to Blodgett Example
In the petrochemical business, it is quite common to see structural steel braces built from WT shapes. Because I prefer the simplicity of using a single angle brace, I prepared a general calculation set demonstrating a few use cases. Link to my single angle brace calculations
