This manual consisting of two parts (a and b) presents an Australian based range of standardized connections for steel structures. Part a consists essentially of a presentation of ten popular connection types in a standardized format, together with load tables for simple (flexible) connections. (the complexity of design and the large numbers of coincident bending moment - shear force combinations that are possible with rigid connections has meant that load tables for these connections are not presented). Once a designer has selected suitable flexible connections and determined the load on the connection, part a provides a very rapid and easy method of connection design, whilst at the same time ensuring fabrication and erection economy. For simplicity, part a deals, in the main, only with orthogonal frames. However, the concepts can readily be adapted to less regular frame geometry, as indeed can the standard components. /TRRL/
