Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


It has been pointed out that when a single line of bracing is used, the member is usually made from structural tubing. It has been suggested that when the loads are not too great, consideration should be given to the use of double angles. The reasons for using these members include convenience, ease of construction, availability of material, etc. The compressive load carrying capacity of each of the three types of double angles have been outlined. The interconnection requirements were also given for the double angles.
