A FRESH LOOK AT BOLTED END-PLATE BEHAVIOR AND DESIGN

The report recommends a design procedure as economical and safe for end-plate connections used as longitudinal splices between beams or frame members, and for beam-to-column connections where the column flanges either are stiffened at the levels of the beam flanges or are otherwise adequate. The procedure derives empirical relationships based upon statistical analysis of the results of parameter studies on the computer. The process reduces to two concepts: application of simple classical theory to a basic model, and modification by a factor which incorporates dominant influences in relatively compact experimentally validated proportions.
