I have a bit of an unusual situation. So, in reality I'm designing some stairs in which the flights/landings cantilever off of columns in the central well of the structure.
All sections of the structural members will be hollow section (beams and columns) and the senior engineer doesn't want to use hollo-bolts or anything similar.
His suggestion for the connection is illustrated in the picture attached.
My concern is, this thin plate connection would need to resist bending plus torsion, would it be any effective in doing so? Or am I overthinking it?
If you have any suggestions on how to design the connection and make sure it works as intended that would also be great!
Do you have the design example for the Chevron Bracing according to EC3? or any book reference?

I am currently doing a beam strengthening by adding a steel plate to the bottom flange of my existing beam. But coming to the reduction of the fy, I realised that I am not very clear about the nominal thickness of the element.
Is it the thickness of the flange or the web? Or is it the larger between 2?
Hope to hear from you guys. Thanks alot!
Hello Engineers, I am a Bachelor degree student in civil engineering. Do you guys have any workout pdf examples of steel beam design according to EC3. I am not familiar with EC3 so it could be nice to see some detail workout example. Thanks

We have finally launched!
After two years of intensive work, we are more than happy to announce the initial release of the beta version of Steel suite.
Steel suite is a cloud-based platform that offers high-end web applications for the design of steel connections according to the Eurocode. The initial version of the platform offers three applications for the design of fin plate simple joints. Additionally, an interactive steel sections library is also available.
The main advantage of Steel suite is that the calculations are implemented on our servers. This feature assures that the engineer can access and use the applications from any device (PCs, laptops, tablets and mobiles) with an internet connection, regardless its computational power. The applications are developed using state of the art technologies, offering interactive 3D and 2D graphics.
Please feel free to create a personal account and test the platform by yourself here:
