L-Flange bolted connection

L-Flange bolted connection

L-Flange bolted connection


I am looking for a reference in English which would contain formulas required to check following L-Flange connection (please see picture below):

Do you have any and may share?


RE: L-Flange bolted connection

Any steel design text book shall have examples on this. Assume the applied force is T, the resulting bolt tension Tb will be larger than T for equilibrium, and prying force, if any.

RE: L-Flange bolted connection

AISC Steel Construction Manual, Chapter 9 - Prying Action (starts on page 9-10 of 15th edition)

RE: L-Flange bolted connection

retired13, if you are aware that some of the books you think of, contains that particular connection it would be truly supportive if you could share the name and authors of this book.

RE: L-Flange bolted connection

As dauwerda, the first comes to mind would be AISC steel design manual. For excellent steel design textbook, I would suggest authors Charles G. Salmon and John E. Johnson, with emphasis on earlier books by Johnson. I suggest to checkout some steel books from college library, and focusing on prying action. The examples may not be exact as shown in your opening inquiry, but the theories and thinking remain useful.
