An unstiffened seated connection is made with a seat angle and a top angle, as illustrated
in figure 5.10.

Figure 5.10 – Unstiffened seat connection

Seated connections are common for connections with light loads and for applications such
as open web steel joints. While the seat is assumed to carry the entire end reaction of the

supported beam, the top angle (typically 100 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm long) must be placed

as shown, or in the alternative side location, for satisfactory performance and stability. To
provide adequate flexibility for the connection, only the toe of the top angle is welded to
the RHS. The thickness of the top angle ought to be 6 mm or greater to accommodate the

minimum size fillet weld to the RHS or beam flange. Even if there is no calculated horizontal

shear force transfer between the beam flanges and the seat angles, two M20 Grade 8.8 (or
ASTM A325) bolts are recommended for the bottom seat angle. Two bolts may also be
used to connect the top angle to the beam flange, or a fillet weld may be used across the
toe of the top angle. Again, the only limit state unique to the RHS wall to be checked
is the shear yield strength of the tube wall adjacent to the two vertical welds to the lower
seat angle (AISC 1997).
