Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Resisting Connections with Example
Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Resisting Connections with Example The seismic design requirements for intermediate and special moment frame systems in Chapter F of AISC 341-10 include extensive requirements for the critical beam-to-column connection. The design of these connections is required to be based on a qualified testing program. However, AISC has prequalified a set of moment connections in Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications (AISC 358-10) that can be used without testing.
This seminar explains the requirements in AISC 341-10 and how to use the prequalified connections in AISC 358-10, including:
