Notes on Design of Double-Angle and Tee Shear Connections for Gravity and Seismic Loads

This Steel TIPS presents information on behavior and design of steel double-angle and tee shear connections. In these connections,a tee section or two angles are welded or bolted to the web of a beam and to the supporting member. The main role of a tee or of double angles in these connections is to transfer shear force from the end of the beam to its support. The behavior of shear connections under the effect of gravity and seismic loads is presented. Included are updated design procedures.
