4.2.6 Joint Webs
All web thicknesses within joints of moment-resisting frames meet AISC criteria for web shear.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is in the strength of the web. Calculate the joint shear capacity using formulas given in the AISC provisions and compare it to the demand from an equivalent lateral force analysis or the average column shear, Vc, calculated for the Quick Check for drift.
