AISC on Vertical Plate with Shear Load to HSS

AISC on Vertical Plate with Shear Load to HSS

AISC on Vertical Plate with Shear Load to HSS

I am designing an HSS column which has a vertical plate with a shear load welded to the column wall. Looking in AISC 14th edition, Table K1.2 on page 16.1-144, it says that the limits are for the plate (which is all set) and the HSS punching shear, which gives the formula in the table. However, this formula is not dependent on the plate's shear load.

My question is shouldn't the thickness of the column wall be dependent on the shear load, since it would be localized? It does say to see Chapter J to calculate Rn, but frustratingly doesn't specify where. Can anyone point to the correct formula, if one exists, to calculate the shear load limit dependent on the HSS column wall thickness?

RE: AISC on Vertical Plate with Shear Load to HSS

What are your plate dimensions?
The HSS dimensions?
The location (of the shear load) on the geometry of the plate?
Why do you assume there is no moment load about the center of the HSS?
How is the plate welded to the HSS ?

Those answers might make your question easy, hard, or irrelevant to answer.
