Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


This paper presents two simple methods for design of steel gusset plates. In the first method, the wedge theories are applied to establish state of stress in steel gusset plates. In the second method, a truss analogy is proposed and used to obtain stresses in the single member as well as multi-member gusset plates. In both methods, well established failure criteria are used to define failure and to formulate design procedures accordingly.
