Brace Connection
This program provides the most complete section/connection type of brace connection.


Brace Connection -W Shpae - Blocked Flange

W Shape with Blocked Flange - it's used in small brace axial load case when the brace axial load is less than 50% of W shape section tensile capacity

 

 

 

Brace Connection -W Shpae - Brace Web With Web Plate
W Shape with Web Plates - it's used in small to medium brace axial load case when the brace axial load is less than 50% of W shape section tensile capacity

 

 

Brace Connection -W Shpae - Brace Web With Clip Angle
W Shape with Web Clip Angles - when using this connection the W shape brace orientation turns 90 degree.

It's commonly used in W shape X brace when the strong axis needs to be out-of plane and the weak axis to be in-plane to take advantage of unsupported length 1.0L in out-of plane and 0.5L in plane.

 

 

Brace Connection -W Shpae - Flange Clip Angles and Web Plates
W Shape with Flange Clip Angles and Web Plates - it's used in largel brace axial load case when the brace axial load is close to 100% of W shape section tensile capacity

 

 

Brace Connection -W Shpae - Flange Clip Angles Only
W Shape with Flange Clip Angles Only -  it's used in largel brace axial load case when the brace axial load is close to 100% of W shape section tensile capacity

 

 

Brace Connection -WT Shpae
WT Shape Brace - it's widely used in both vertical and horizontal brace case

 

 

Brace Connection -Double Angle - Back to Back
Double Angle Brace Back to Back - it's normally used in vertical brace.

 

 

Brace Connection -Double Angle - Horizontal Brace
Double Angle Brace in Horizontal Brace Case - it's normally used in horizontal brace.

 

 

Brace Connection -Double Angle - Starred Angle
Double Angle Brace Starred Angle - it's normally used in both vertical and horizontal brace case
