Looking for guidance using Table A-3.1 in AISC manual for the fatigue equation for welding a cap channel to a wide flange beam. One option is continuous fillet welds and the other is intermittent fillet welds. It appears that for continuous fillet welds equation 3.1 is the correct one which has a stress limit of 16 ksi....but equation 3.4 for intermittent welds with a stress limit of 4.5 ksi....which seems really low.
Thanks for any insight.
