The fasteners shall pass through the interior of the box column and be anchored on the opposite face. However, a number of tests have also been conducted using deeper columns, including W18, W27 and W36 W, W and W columns.
The fillet welds shall be sized to develop the iasc shear strength of the connection. To satisfy the requirements of the Aidc Seismic Provisions for lateral bracing at plastic hinges, supplemental lateral bracing shall be provided at both the top and bottom beam flanges, and shall be located at a distance of d to 1. Review of available test data indicates that RBS specimens, when designed and constructed according to the limits and procedures presented herein, have developed interstory drift angles of at least 0.
Results are reported in several publications Ricles et al. These brittle fractures were unexpected and were quite different from the anticipated behavior of ductile beam flexural yielding in plastic hinge zones. For those interested in printed copies, a limited number of softcover versions of AISC’s standards are available for purchase to the right.

No attachment of lateral bracing shall be made to the beam in the region extending from the face of the column to a distance d beyond the end of the bracket.
Design a single-plate shear connection for the required shear strength, Vu, calculated in Step 14 and located at the face of the column, meeting the requirements of the AISC Specification.
If desired, the gravity load on this small portion of the beam is permitted to be included. These members have not generally aisx tested in other prequalified connections; however, the conditions of inelastic deformation imposed on the built-up shapes in these other connection types are similar to those tested for the bolted end-plate connections.
Any repair of gouges and notches by filling with weld metal must be made using filler metals with the required notch toughness. It should be noted, however, that the BFP and most other prequalified connections do not have specific seismic test data to document ajsc prequalification of built-up beam sections.
Iasc of all internal forces and stresses between elements of the built-up column shall be through welds. In the Northridge earthquake, a number of steel moment frame buildings were found to have experienced brittle fractures that initiated at the welded beam flange-to-column flange joints of moment connections.
One of the interior specimens included a composite floor slab. Tests have been conducted primarily on bare-steel specimens, although some testing is also reported on specimens with composite slabs. Check the column panel zone according to Section 7. Plate preparation and welds are not shown.
It was the judgment of the CPRP that for the purposes of establishing initial prequalification limits, adherence to the maximum tested specimen would be appropriately conservative. Tests on RBS connections show that yielding is generally concentrated within the reduced section of the beam and may extend, to a limited extent, to the face of the column.
The beam-flange-to-end-plate and stiffener weld requirements equal or exceed the welding that was used to prequalify the three extended end-plate moment connections.

Step 7 uses the geometry established in Step 5 and the maximum shear force established in Step 6 to determine the maximum expected moment at the face of the column flange, Mf. Check the beam flange for block shear per the following: RBS connections have been tested using single-cantilever type specimens one beam attached to columnand double-sided specimens specimen consisting of a single column, with beams attached to both flanges.
Certification of conformance with the requirements of this Appendix shall be submitted to the purchaser. Links are provided everywhere blue text is used. It should be noted that the strong column—weak beam criteria contained in AISC are valid only for planar frames. For the remainder of the beam, the weld size shall not be less than that required to accomplish shear transfer from the web to the flanges.
Group of cutting processes that severs or removes metal by localized melting, burning or vaporizing of the workpiece. The exception applies only when shear studs are 35-10 to attach the concrete slab to the connected beam and is because of the lack Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications,incl.
Some connection types designate the bolted joint to be designed as aidc, and others waive the faying surface requirements of the AISC Seismic Provisions. Four-bolt unstiffened extended end-plate 4E geometry.
Qualification shall demonstrate familiarity with inspection 3588-10 acceptance criteria used in evaluation of cast steel products. Two means of demonstration are acceptable. When determining the width-to-thickness ratio of the flange, the value of bf shall aosc be taken as less than the flange width at the ends of the center two-thirds of the reduced section provided that gravity loads do not shift the location of the plastic hinge a significant distance from the center of the reduced beam section.
Determine the required shear strength of the column panel zone, Rupz, using the following relationship: Compute the probable maximum moment at the face of the column: This provision recognizes that the plastic hinge of the beam forms within the 538-10 of the RBS cut where the width of the flange is less than at the uncut section. The patent holders have filed statements of willingness to grant a license under these rights on reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms and conditions to applicants desiring to obtain such a license.
Secondary yielding is expected in the column panel zone and very limited subsequent yielding is expected in the flange plate.
Check the continuity plate requirements according to Chapter 2. Steps 10 and 11 check the flange plate width and thickness to ensure that tensile yield strength and tensile rupture strength, respectively, exceed the maximum expected tensile force in the flange. For column sections deeper than W14, continuity plates shall be provided. Although no data were available for test specimens with orthogonal beams, this condition should provide ostensibly the same performance as single-plane connections, since the RBS does not rely on panel zone yielding for good performance, and the column is expected to remain essentially elastic for the case of orthogonal connections.
The exterior specimens consisted of one beam attached to a column.
