THE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF SINGLE PLATE FRAMING CONNECTIONS

In this paper, two typical single plate framing connections are discussed and illustrated. In both cases, the connection comprises a single plate, with prepunched bolt holes, that is shop welded to the supporting member. The standard design procedure for the single plate framing connection is too assume each bolt carries an equal portion of the total shear load and, in agreement with the simple support assumption, that relatively free rotation occurs between the end of the beam and the supporting member. In order to evaluate the end moment generated by the single plate framing connection, the beam line method of analysis was used. Included in the discussion is an explanation of moment-rotation curves as well as results and summaries a various full beam tests--three- bolt test, five-bolt test, seven-bolt test and three-bolt test with six-inch bolt pitch. Also, design formulas and recommended design procedures are discussed.
