De lamination is one of the most important material irregularities which affect the stress of materials under any type of loading. De lamination can be described as the separation layers from each other or the formation of unconnected layers. De lamination irregularities can be formed during the manufacturing stage of a structural element, service loads other effects such as corrosion. De lamination in materials is an irregularity which formed suddenly (by impact) or slowly over time (by corrosion fatigue). In this the delamination effects on single angle sections are examined, which are commonly I in engineering structures because of their geometrical properties. De laminations are in single angle sections under bending and axial loads. After the experiments examinations, it is concluded that delamination crack width is very effective on strength of steel single angle section structural members. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
