RE: Bent Plate Versus Rolled Angle

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As a general question, I'd answer "no," because "cold work" vs. "hot 
rolled" in addition to the other factors.

However, for the purpose for which you are specifically proposing it be put 
 to use, I'd say there's virtually no difference. Doubt the "k" area will 
have any role to play in that case.

Subject: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] Bent Plate Versus Rolled Angle

If a bent plate has the same dimensional sizes (i.e., leg lengths and
thickess) as a rolled angle, do both shapes have the same structural 

I'd assume that the bent plate has slightly less strength than the angle 
based upon the "k" area not the same but not substationally less.

As usual, this question is posed in response to a reviewer's comment 
regarding a project where a bent plate is proposed for brick veneer
