Module 2 – Eccentrically Loaded Weld Groups
Design Module No. 2, Eccentrically Loaded Weld Groups, covers traditional methods for determining the resistance of fillet weld groups in connections of various configurations which are subject to an eccentric point load applied either in-plane or out-of-plane. Weld groups subject to an inclined point load applied in-plane are also included. Several sets of charts and a table are presented to assist designers, and solved examples are given to illustrate practical applications.
DM2 is intended to be used in conjunction with CSA Standard S16-14, Design of Steel Structures, which references CSA Standard W59-13, Welded Steel Construction (Metal Arc Welding).
