Abstract Share this page

Starred angles are commonly used as web members in trusses. Standards contain requirements which specify the number of interconnectors to be used, but most standards do not specify a preferred arrangement for the interconnectors. When plates are used as interconnectors, three arrangements — aligned, alternating, or cruciform — are possible. Nine starred angles, three with each arrangement of interconnectors, were tested. A finite element analysis was also conducted. It was determined that the arrangement of the interconnectors did not affect the load-carrying capacity of the starred angles. Key words: angles, buckling, building (codes), columns (structural) interconnection, starred angle.
