Similar to the Single Angle connection, the Single Seat connection uses the same L-bracket to join two members but is located at the flange of the child member. This connection provides a higher shear and bearing strength to the overall connection whilst keep its erection procedure relatively simple.
Similar to all the other connessioni a taglio, this connection can be welded or bolted on both the parent and child side. The Single Seat connection sometimes comes paired with a stability angle to offset the load needed to support the members.
- To reserve as much length as possible on the flange of the L-bracket that is supporting the child member as the increased length will induced a higher moment load on the connection
- Bolt spacing should take into account the thickness of the web for child member.
