Re: Angle in Bending

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I do not believe there is one.

Results depend on how you are using the angle.  If the top leg is horizontal
(compression flange) and continually braced, the outstanding leg (vertical)
is the web / tension flange and the analysis is just like a beam (picture a
flat plate with vertical bars welded below creating a series of Effective WT
sections)  The caveat is whether or not the load can be assumed to act
through the shear center.  (angles don't do torsion well)

I use small angles for short elements and as plate stiffeners.  Personally,
I keep the stress low ( < 15 Ksi) and keep the outstanding leg from being
too slender ( b/t < 12).  Otherwise I would use a  TS, WT, or small W
section.
