Design of Chevron Connections


Centerline models of braced frames do not capture the local forces that occur due to transfer of forces over the connection length rather than at a point. The presentation will provide tools for correctly analyzing the static forces at chevron connections. Additionally, two models of stress will be presented, permitting both simplified and optimized design.
