Subject: RE: Steel Ledger AngleReg,Assuming you are asking about the effective bending "width" of the horizontal leg... I would draw a 45 degree line from the edge of the joist seat at the free end of the horizontal leg back towards the wall.Variables:===========K = clear distance that the jost is held from the wallL = Bearing Length of joist end seat on the horizontal legW = Endseat width of joistb = effective bending width of horizontal legb = W + 2 * (L - K)When I have cheked them in the past I checked the following:1) Local Bending of Top (horizontal) leg due to vertical loads2) Axial Capacity from chord forces (if they exist)3) Lateral Loads on the ledger from wall suction or joist pulling away from wall (strut loads, etc.)From past memories if the ledger angles are welded to embedded plates in the walls they check out easier than if they are anchored in with expansion bolts (or similar).Hope this helps,Greg Effland, P.E.

Subject: Steel Ledger Angle
I have a steel ledger angle - vertical leg bolted to a concrete wall, horizontal leg used to support regularly spaced floor joists. I am looking at bending of the horizontal leg under vertical loading. What should the effective length of the horizontal leg be? It should be some value less than, or equal to, the spacing of the joists. A mentor once taught me to use 8 times the thickness of the leg + the width of the joist + 8 times the thickness of the leg, i.e., S = (8t+1.5+8t) x t^2 / 6 (for 2x joists). I have know idea where this method comes from (and I am pretty sure he did not either).
Thank you in advance,
