This paper discusses a design model for light bracing cleat connections. For the purposes of this publication, light bracing cleat connections are defined as unstiffened cleats that connect light bracing members to beams or columns. Typical applications include roof and wall bracing in one-way rigid/one-way braced frames such as industrial building structures. This publication may also be used to design unstiffened cleats which connect diagonal members in trusses to main chord members. In Steel Construction journal, vol. 43, no. 2, March 2010.
