AISC 13 th Construction Manual (Table 10-9)

AISC 13 th Construction Manual (Table 10-9)

AISC 13 th Construction Manual (Table 10-9)

Dear All,

please check the attachment as i have marked in red the last point of the limitations mentioned for the table 10-9 in AISC 13 constructional manual. By the side i have also attached the section where the boxed are left blank for the cases mentioned above. Can u please help me understand why. Or where it is referenced.


RE: AISC 13 th Construction Manual (Table 10-9)

If you read through the commentary before the table, you will see that they limit the plate thickness, t, to db/2 + 1/16" for a single row of bolts to ensure that the plate moment strength does not exceed the moment strength of the bolt group in shear. If you get to that thickness, there's no reason to use a thicker plate as the bolts will fail first anyway so you are wasting steel.

Now i get it. It would be great help if u could specify the where to look at in Commentary. I went through Chapter J but could not find the part where it is discussed.

Thanks in Advance.

It is on page 10-103 of my copy of the 13th Edition Manual.
On page 10-104 of the 14th Edition.

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
