clip angles with tension

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a gusset to column connection consisting of a gusset attached to a 
double clip angle.  The clip angles are welded to the supporting member and 
bolted to the gusset.  The loads to the gusset are from diagonal bracing, 
therefore, I have both shear and tension on the clip angles.  I guess I have 
two questions.  First, how do I resolve the block shear requirements (tension 
and shear) at the bolted legs?  I seem to remember a thread concerning 
something like this but I can't find it. The second question is how would the 
design of the welds to the supporting member be done with both shear and 
tension on the weld group.  The angles welded on three sides with some prying 
action is what I am seeing now, but my brain is a little foggy from the 
holidays and can't quite get the design straight in my mind.
