Analysis and Design of Stabilizer Plates in Single Plate Shear Connections [N61]This session will present various options for the types of stabilizer plates used, when and if required, to provide lateral bracing to connection plates in single plate shear connections. Four types of stabilizer plates will be presented along with the analysis and design methodologies for each type of plate. The impact on the behavior and design of the single plate shear connection, as well as the supporting member, will also be discussed.
