This paper presents a portion of the results of a study to develop design procedures for the extended, multiple row, moment end-plate configuration. This configuration is used in steel portal frame construction to connect a rafter to a rafter (a 'splice-plate connection') or to connect a rafter to a column. The objectives of the study were accomplished by developing end-plate strength prediction and bolt force prediction equations. Six tests of full size end-plate configurations were then performed to verify these analytical prediction equations.
