I have a picture of a beam and a bar joist. the connection is an angle that is fillet welded. Assume these are the typical bar joist and beam layout in an industrial . I have to figure the orientation of the forces (tension, compression, shear, moment) being transmitted by the connection. I have a picture I can send in an email. Some care to give me a hand? I AM NOT ASKING FOR THE ANSWER

I actually have that site as one of my favorites. Thanks.
To my understanding, since the connection is an angle that is welded to both the bar joist and beam, it makes it a moment connection. Therefore there is no shear. Correct? But I am confuseded on how to determine the compression and tenion by transmitted by the angle.

JC we are going back w-a-a-a-a-y-y-y-y too many years for me. I haven't studied that stuff since 1964. Wish I could help you.

You can probably see that some of these other jokers have no idea what we are talking about.

If one of you guys have some engineering background please speak up.:)
