single angle members

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone have advice on the use of single angles as web members in a truss?  How is the compressive capacity of the single angle determined?  If the angles are welded to the gusset plates, is there still a concern on eccentric loading of the angle, or is it assumed the angle is concentrically loaded and designed accordingly?

Any help would be appreciated.
