YIELD LINE ANALYSIS OF COLUMN WEBS WITH WELDED BEAM CONNECTIONS

A yield line approach is described here, in which the final result is a series of curves covering a very high percentage of restrained beam to column web connections involving hot rolled shapes. The curves relate beam moments to column web thickness for a series of beam sizes and for W14 columns with yield strengths of 36 and 50 ksi. For special cases not covered by these curves, but for which the yield line pattern assumed is valid, direct solutions may be developed by use of the formulas used to construct these curves. The assumptions used by the authors are listed. Details are given of the yield line analysis and the internal work summary. A design example is described.
