Summary

Tang - Shear stud or fitting on armoured joint to provide bond to adjacent concrete.

Technical Information

Armoured Joint Tang Diagram

Anchorage fittings such as “tangs” or shear studs need to provide adequate stability without creating planes of weakness in the concrete close to the joint, They should extend to the full length of the joint and be provided close to the ends and near to the joint intersections.

In addition, consideration can be given to welding the armouring sections at corners and intersections on site or by the use of prefabricated sections. However, it is important to ensure that at intersections all four corners are free from connection to each other. It must be possible to compact the concrete fully under and around the anchorages and any other steel sections if used for a load-transfer mechanism.
