Re: rigid frame design resource

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A connection is a connection is a connection.  There is nothing specific to
tapered moment frames that changes the bolted connection design from
standard AISC connection design. Either ASD or LRFD, pick one consistant
with your method of frame design and use the standard tables and design
methods.  I know, somebody who knows more about subject than I can probably
point errors in those statements, however at Butler Manufacturing Company we
use the ASD manual to design all connections.  (plus a lot of aids which are
ASD based and a little LRFD thrown for good measure)

You need to determine the shear, moment, and axial tension or compression at
any connection and design the connection to exceed all of those applied
forces.  Any third party software or design aids must be traceble to AISC or
similar design standards.
