Flexibility of Steel Seismic Moment Connections

by Egor P. Popov, Univ of California, Berkeley, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Connection Flexibility and Steel Frames


Relevant Berkeley experimental results are critically evaluated to determine the flexibility of W18 W24 beam joints with and without stiffeners and/or doubler plates. The paper discusses mathematical modeling of joint flexibility, the need for further analytical studies and suggestions for improving the commonly used joint details.
