Intermediate Moment Frame - Extended End Plate Connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In designing extended end plate connections for an Intermediate Moment Frame, we have been using AISC Design Guide 4 for seismic applications. These connections appear to cater for SMRFs. Are there guidelines for IMRFs. As the connections for an IMRF are required to experience much lower rotations, the applied moment of 1.1 RyFyZ plus VuLp may be excessive.
Any ideas.
