When Graitec will adopt FEMA 350 moment connectionrequirements?
I would like to see the following improvements:
1-Top & bottom flanges to be cut for RBS (reduce Beam Section) values .
2-New value from face of column to face of beam web.
3-Beam web to receive miter cut for C.J.P. weld.
4-Shear tab is no longer rectangular. it is tapered. 1" horizontal,1" vertical
5-Continuity plates need gap from inner side of column flanges & be beveledalong column flange.
6-Additional fillet weld added to top flange C.J.P.
