Collar flanges transfer compressive beam flange forces to the collar corners through flexure of the collar flange and direct bearing onto the collar corners.
Consequently, prequalified RBS connections do not require specific access-hole geometry. Select a trial number of bolts. The fundamental seismic behaviors expected with the BFP moment connection include: Details and Treatment of Weld Tabs.
Consequently, only the radius-cut RBS shape is prequalified. The location of yielding of the BFP moment connection is somewhat analogous to the RBS connection, and therefore, prequalification limits for the column are comparable to those used for the RBS connection.
However, the design of the connection is relatively complex because numerous yield mechanisms and failure modes must be considered in the design process. It should be noted, however, that the BFP and most other prequalified connections do not have specific seismic test data to document the prequalification of aosc beam sections.
Column with attached collar corner assemblies.
Built-up box columns shall not have a width or depth exceeding 24 in. Built-up box-columns aixc not have a width or depth exceeding 24 in. The shear force at the hinge location, Vh, shall be determined from a free body diagram of the portion of the beam between the plastic hinge locations.
If the maximum moment occurs within the span and exceeds Mpe of the beam see Equation 5. Weld access holes should satisfy the requirements of Section 6.
For standard holes with two bolts per row: The weld procedure specification WPS for the fillet weld joining the bracket to the beam flange shall aixc qualified with the casting material. The RBS specimens with welded web connections achieved 0. Caution must be exercised when relying upon other specifications and codes developed by other bodies and incorporated by reference herein since such material may be modified or amended from time to time subsequent to the printing of this edition.
This may lead to designs in which inelastic action is concentrated within the panel zone. Good performance has been achieved for all levels of panel zone strength FEMA, fincluding panel zones that are substantially weaker than permitted in Section E3. The pinching is caused by a combination of bolt slip and the sequence of yielding and strain hardening encountered in the connection. The Specification provides the generally applicable requirements for the design and construction of aisf steel buildings and other structures.
Since many of the tested beam sections were built-up members, the limitations are in cross section dimensions instead of rolled-beam designations. Built-up Members The behavior of built-up I-shaped members has been extensively tested in bolted endplate connections and has been demonstrated to be capable of developing the Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications,incl.
Flanged cruciform columns shall not aksc a width or depth greater than the depth allowed for rolled shapes. The Seismic Provisions is also available with linked content to aid in navigation of the document. If cracks are found, the tooling or forging procedure shall be modified and an additional 12 initial pieces shall be tested.

When determining the width-to-thickness ratio of the flange, the value of bf shall not 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. Beam Flange Plate Welds Flange plates shall be connected to the column flange using CJP groove welds and shall be considered demand critical.
Two means of demonstration are acceptable. The interior specimens consisted of a column with beams attached to both flanges. Calculation of elastic drift shall consider the effect of the reduced beam section. By publication of this standard, no position is taken with respect to the validity of any claim s or of any patent rights in connection therewith. An example calculation is shown in Figure C A distance of 3 times the bolt diameter is preferred.
When welded to the beam flange, the a b Fig. However, no test data are available for BFP moment connections with composite slabs, and so the BFP moment connection is not prequalified with reinforced concrete structural slabs that contact the face of the columns.
Submittal to Engineer of Record and Authority Having Jurisdiction The following documents shall be submitted to the engineer of record and the authority having jurisdiction, prior to, or with shipment as applicable: Flanged cruciform section columns, built-up box columns, and boxed wide-flange columns are permitted to be used in assemblies subjected to bi-axial loading for those connections types where inelastic behavior is concentrated in the 358-100, rather than in the column.
Once the required number of bolts is established, bolt spacing and an initial estimate of the flange plate length can be established. Moment at face of column vs.
This provision recognizes that the plastic hinge of the beam forms within the length of the RBS cut where the width of the flange is less than at the uncut section. Primary plastic hinging of the BFP moment connection occurs well away from the face of the column, and lateral-torsional deformation will occur as extensive yielding develops in the connection. Beam Flange Plate Welds. Routine welding QC items include personnel wisc, material control, preheat measurement, monitoring of welding procedures, and visual inspection.

The demands may be smaller because of the somewhat smaller strain-hardening moment increase achieved with the BFP moment connection as compared to the welded webwelded flange and other FR connections. No significant testing of such minor axis connections following the Northridge aiac has been conducted. It is permitted to place compressible material in the gap between the column flanges and the concrete structural slab.
