Dave: It looks like a more recent reference (by some of the same folks) is available on this topic. According to the NISEE web site, this more recent reference (as described below) is "available on loan from the Earthquake Engineering Library at the University of California, Berkeley." The librarians are very knowledgeable and helpful (we get info from them several times each month). For more information contact: EERC Library 1301 S. 46th Street Richmond, CA 94804-4698 Phone: 510-231-9403 Fax: 510-231-9461 Email: eerclib(--nospam--at)nisee.berkeley.edu Regards, Mike ================== Reference as follows: Author: Walbridge, S. S.; Grondin, G. Y.; Cheng, J. J. R. Title: An analysis of the cyclic behaviour of steel gusset plate connections Call No: CF 13 with 620.1/J68/v.46(1-3) Citation: Second World Conference on Steel in Construction [computer file], Elsevier Science Ltd., [Oxford, England], 1998, Paper No. 305 Abstract: In the past few years, several test programs have been carried out at the University of Alberta to study the compressive and cyclic behavior of gusset plate connections. It has been found that an adequately designed gusset plate connection will exhibit a stable post-buckling strength and a well-behaved load-defection hysteresis. This paper summarizes recent work done at the University of Alberta on the modelling of steel gusset plate connections using the finite element program ABAQUS. For the analytical study described in this paper, finite element models were constructed of gusset plate connections, incorporating framing members, material yielding, initial imperfections and bolt slip. These models were used to study the behaviour of gusset plate connections under monotonic tension, monotonic compression and cyclic loading. Under monotonic tension loading, the effects of material model, mesh refinement, boundary conditions and fastener (bolt) model were studied. Under monotonic compression loading, the effects of these parameters were studied, as well as the effects of initial imperfection shape and magnitude. Under monotonic tension loading, it was found that the effects of material model and boundary conditions on the behaviour of the gusset plate connection model were significant. The fastener model turned out to have little noticeable effect on the connection model. Under monotonic compression loading, initial imperfection magnitude turned out to have the largest effect on the behavior of the gusset plate connection model. Boundary conditions also turned out to be important. Less significant were the effects of material model, fastener model and mesh refinement. Based on the findings of the monotonic loading studies, models of four previously tested gusset plate connections were constructed to study the behaviour of gusset plate connections under cyclic loading. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Michael Valley, P.E., S.E.

Would appreciate some help locating a copy. Thanks, D a v e E v a n s, P. E. T N H, I n c.
