Double Angle Web Cleats Simple Beam to SHS Column Connection Detail
This is a CAD dwg drawing of a Double Angle Web Cleats Simple Beam to SHS Column Connection Detail. Square hollow section ( SHS ) columns are a little more tedious in terms of connection types, since bolts cannot be tightened from the inside.
In order to achieve a simple connection between an IPE steel beam and such SHS column, one way is to weld two angle web cleats with a full penetration butt weld onto the column and then use bolts on-site to connect to the IPE steel beam’s web. This is considered to be a simple connection with no moment resistance. Only axial and vertical loads are being carried onto the steel column.
Same type of connection detail can also be used and instead of bolting to the beam’s web, the two angle web cleats can also be fillet welded on-site to the beam’s web.
