Wind-moment steel frames with standard ductile connections
UNSPECIFIED (1999) Wind-moment steel frames with standard ductile connections. JOURNAL OF CONSTRUCTIONAL STEEL RESEARCH, 52 (3). pp. 255-268. ISSN 0143-974XFull text not available from this repository.
The established wind-moment method is a form of plastic design which requires beam-to-column connections to behave in a ductile manner. Standard details are therefore necessarily relatively flexible, which affects both serviceability and the stability of such frames. This paper reports a study on the influence of these connections on the ultimate and service behaviour of multi-storey frames. Existing recommendations are shown to be safe and previous restrictions on the Class of steel section can be relaxed. The ductility required in the connections is found to be well within the observed capacity of the joints. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
