For fillet welds, the fillet weld should be held back one to two weld sizes from each clip.

The width shall extend 2 in. The flanged cruciform column and boxed wide-flange columns have not specifically been tested. These requirements reflect testing used to prequalify the BFP moment connection, but they also reflect practical limitations in the connection design. Details for this connection type are shown in Figure 7. In later testing, Murray repeated this test but placed a flexible 3558-10 between the vertical face of the end plate and the slab to inhibit slab participation aisf transfer of load to the column.

Check that the edge distance for the beam flange holes satisfies the AISC Specification requirements. As part of the Lehigh program, tests were conducted on both interior and exterior type specimens. Fabrication of Flange Cuts.

Beams are delivered to the job site with the collar flange assemblies shop-welded to the ends of the beams. Because beams with WUF-W moment connections are viewed as somewhat less prone to lateral-torsional buckling than aisx with RBS moment connections, the column limitations established for the RBS moment connection were judged as appropriate for the WUF-W moment connection.

Select beam and column elements which satisfy the limits of Section 9. Slip-critical connection provisions are not required for end-plate moment connections. Steel Backing at Continuity 35810 The stress and strain level at the groove weld between a continuity plate and column flange is considerably different than that at the beam flange-to-column flange connection; therefore it is not necessary to remove the backing.

Design a single-plate shear connection for 358-110 required shear strength, Vu, calculated in Step 14 and located 385-10 the face of the column, meeting the requirements of the AISC Specification. Step 1 of this procedure defines the maximum expected moment, Mpr, at the last bolt away from the face of the column in the flange plate. If built-up sections are used, the webto-flange weld may be a one-sided fillet weld, except within the beam, depth, or three times the flange width of the face of the end-plate.


Compute the plastic section modulus at the center of the reduced beam section: The design criteria provide sufficient strength in the elements of the connections to ensure that the inelastic deformation of the connection is achieved by beam yielding. The flange plate bolts cannot experience a tensile force larger than Fpr, and so Step 9 checks the actual number of bolts required in the connection.


Cracks shall not be permitted. The pitch distances, psi and pso, are the distances from the face of the continuity plate to the centerline of the nearer bolt row, as shown in Figures 6. Therefore, weld access holes are not permitted for extended end-plate moment connections. When tack welds for the attachment of weld tabs are placed within the weld joint, they become part of the final weld.

Key features of the WUF-W moment connection that are intended to control fracture are as follows: The pinching is caused by a combination of bolt slip and the sequence of yielding and strain hardening encountered in the connection.

Reinforced concrete slab or concrete fill on steel deck with a total thickness of 3 in. All specimens were tested with the full-depth weld configuration. Similarly, although there has been only limited testing of connections in assemblies subjected to biaxial bending of the column, the judgment of the CPRP was that as long as columns are designed to remain essentially elastic and inelastic behavior is concentrated within the beams, it would be possible to obtain acceptable behavior of beam-column connection assemblies subjected to biaxial loading.

Only one coupon is allowed per order! The radius cut avoids abrupt changes of cross section, reducing the chances of a premature fracture occurring within the reduced section.

Results are reported in several publications Ricles et al. Beam Flange Plate Welds Flange plates shall be connected to the column flange using CJP groove welds and shall be considered demand critical.

The beam flange must have greater net section fracture resistance than its yield resistance, because tensile aixc of the flange is a ductile mechanism and net section rupture is a brittle failure.


358-0 protected zone is based on test observations. No attachment ais lateral bracing shall be made to the beam in the region extending from the face of the column to a distance d from the face of the column. Step 4 of the design procedure requires computation of the shear force at the center of the RBS radius cut. Dual-units format provides for both U. Limits are also placed on span-to-depth ratio based on the span-to-depth ratios of the tested connections and based on judgment of the CPRP.

The largest box column for which test data was available was 24 in.

For d, add twice the thickness of the flange plate to the beam depth. In general, isolation is achieved if steel stud anchors are not included in the protected zone and if the slab is separated 3558-10 all surfaces of the column by an open gap or by use of compressible foam-like material.

This research program included extensive finite element studies that supported the development of the special seismic weld access hole and the details of the web connection.

Column Limitations Nearly all tests of RBS connections have been performed with the beam flange welded to the column flange i.

The guide was developed before this Standard was written, and there are small differences between the design procedures in the guide and in Commentary Section 6. These combined forces are then transferred to the column walls through a combination of bearing and the fillet welds attaching the collar corners to the column. It incorporated Supplement No. The plate thickness shall not exceed 3 in. Resistance Factors Where 3588-10 strengths are calculated in accordance with the AISC Specification, the resistance factors specified therein shall apply.

If using either the four-bolt extended stiffened end-plate 4ES or the eightbolt extended stiffened end-plate 8ES connection, select the end-plate stiffener thickness and design the stiffener-to-beam flange and stiffener-to-end-plate welds.

Where required, the vertical plate depth may extend beyond the contact surface area by up to 4 in.
