Rick, It seems that Blodgett's recommendations is allowing either the attaching plate or the attaching member to buckle and therefore you design the more rigid element for the eccentric moment. What good is this if one of the elements has failed. It seem to make more sense to design both for the applied forces including any eccentricity. With the history of Northridge moment frame welds we need to remember that steel structures do not always perform the same as our design assumptions. This is one reason I have never been excited with plastic design of steel structures. I prefer to keep the stresses in the elastic range. Jim Dane ...
