Question: a splice plate shown below is used to transfer tensile...

Question details

A splice plate shown below is used to transfer tensile load across two channel sections.
Design the minimum plate thickness (size by the nearest 1/8" thickness) assuming A36
steel and the bolted connection details shown below. The holes are punched at 9/16"
diameter. The plate has an 8" depth and is subject to a 10k dead load and 40k live load.
Consider gross section yielding, net section rupture, and block shear rupture limit states.
Use LRFD.
(HINT: for this problem, you should be able to calculate the required " for each limit
state. The largest required thickness is the one that controls the design)
