[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Moment connections at the ends of girder trusses are routine in areas of low
seismicity. It makes up the lateral force resisting system.

Forgive me if I am reading your question incorrectly, but isn't the typical
knife plate connection you refer to for stability only, not a moment
connection.  In my experience the plate is not attached to the girder bottom
chord at all.
