The Single Plate is a commonly used shear connection for its simplicity and ease of erection into the structure. The single plate configuration is normally welded on the parent side and can be either bolted or welded on the child side.

HSS single plate connection

Design

Similar to the Double Angle connection, the single plate connection should provide some looseness in the connection allow it to transfer the shear loads without taking any of the moment loads. As such if the plate is welded to the child side, careful consideration should be taken to prevent high amount of moment load from entering the connection.
