Shear block resistance

In the attached article, a block shear resistance of a thin gusset plate is compared.

The resistance determined by CSA S14-16 depends on the yield and ultimate strength while CBFEM uses only bilinear material diagram. The CBFEM is conservative, especially for low strength steel grades.
