RE: Semi rigid connection design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In steel structures, are you considering Semi rigid Connections ?
Yes
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.
No. It can put bending in the columns, and it is difficult to have a predictable yield point of the connection.

2) Experiment data available .
None of which I am aware.
3) Other points, if any.
Design for the yield of the connection. Look at Blodgett's, "Design of Welded Connections".

Regards,
Harold Sprague
