That's the one. It can be applied to double angles just like it is
applied to a tee shear connection.

Remember with prying action it is rarely the fitting that is critical --
the fitting deformation is increasing the force in bolts. But then, once
you make the assembly work for the loads, you have to answer the
question of whether the fitting can still flex. To do that, turn the
procedure around. That is, make sure that the d_sub_b, T_sub_f, b, and L
satisfy the relationship in the equation on page 9-14. If it does, there
will be enough flexibility in the assembly so as not to preclude the
simple beam action. Welded connections can be checked using the
relationship on page 9-13.
