I have a project where the fabricator wants to mitre the corner of 2 W24x94s as shown in the attached sketch. Does anyone have any concerns about the analysis and design of same? I can add a web stiffener diagonally, if necessary. I’ve not encountered this for any projects, and I don’t have a really good reason to tell him not to… it’s his nickel.
