## All-Bolted Single-Angle Shear Connectors, Block Shear Rupture Check Required???

(OP)

Hello Everyone!

I am designing an "All-Bolted Single-Angle Shear Connection" for the first time and I have no clue if I need to check for block shear rupture.

Background:

I am designing a connection for an aluminum simply supported channel beam using a single aluminum angle with stainless steel bolts for my shear connection.

The only load on the beam is the UDL across the top.

I can't tell how the angle would be susceptible to block shear rupture. Every example I've seen, there has been a tension member. But I don't have any tension members in my connection, right?

Someone please help me to understand. I have been trying to figure this out forever and my project is due on Thursday.

Any help is appreciated!!

Quick question: My effective net area for tension would be horizontal and vertical for shear, right?? How does that work where they overlap?

Can you post a sketch of an example? I'm having difficulty visualizing the scenario that you've described.

If no one's noticed, I'm having a really hard time visualizing where the tear will be :(

not to complicate things but I've always seen figure 2a from KootK's post with the shear line thru the bolt center line, as it's drawn in their figure you'd potentially get more Anv.

I know this question is very confusing.

Also, I'm tryng to sketch it but it doesn't make sense. Let me sketch and upload my best shot at it. Brb
