Semi rigid connection design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear all,
 
Sub : Semi rigid connection design
 
In steel structures, are you considering Semi rigid Connections ?
 
If, yes than kindly share your experience regarding following points -
 
1) Use of knee bracing at each and every beam column junction, so that moment at the junction can be taken care off by the knee bracing and the junction may be designed as a shear connection only.
 
2) Experiment data available .
 
3) Other points, if any.
 
 
Regards,
