This Standard is incorporated by reference in the Seismic Provisions. The column flange thickness shall satisfy the following requirement to eliminate continuity plates: Continuity Plate Requirements For W14 and shallower columns, continuity plates are not required if Equation 9. The intent of the design procedure in Section 6. See Commentary Section 5. Similarly, beams with shorter spanto-depth ratio will have a sharper moment gradient across the beam span, resulting in reduced length of the beam participating in plastic hinging and increased strains under inelastic rotation demands.
Following the removal of steel backing, the root pass shall be backgouged to sound weld metal and backwelded with a reinforcing fillet. Choose trial values for the beam sections, column sections and RBS dimensions a, b and c Figure 5.
The influence of left-in-place steel backing is more severe on the bottom flange, as compared to the top flange, because at the bottom flange, the stress concentration from the backing occurs at the 3358-10 of maximum applied and secondary tensile stresses in the groove weld, at the weld root, and at the outer fiber of the beam flange.
An example calculation is shown in Figure C The spacing, pb, is the distance between the inner and outer row of bolts in an 8ES end-plate moment connection and is aisx in Figure 6.
Steel Backing at Continuity Plates Steel backing used at continuity plate-to-column welds need not be removed. End-Plate and Bolt Design Step 1. Check the column flange for flexural yielding: The publication of the material contained herein is not intended as a representation or warranty, on the part of the American Institute of Steel Construction or of any other person named herein, that this information is suitable for any general or particular use or of freedom from infringement of any patent or patents.
The pitch distances, psi and pso, are the distances from the face of the continuity plate to the centerline of the nearer bolt row, as shown in Figures 6. The contour of the weld end shall provide a smooth transition to adjacent surfaces, free of notches, gouges and sharp corners. Consequently, RBS connections have been prequalified for use with built-up box columns up to 24 in. Determine the beam plastic hinge location, Sh, as dimensioned from the face of the column.
Aizc the sizes of the connected members beams and column and compute the moment at the face of the column, Mf. Additionally, non-mandatory User Notes are interspersed throughout the Standard to provide concise and practical guidance in the application of the provisions. These requirements reflect testing used to prequalify the BFP moment connection, but they also reflect practical limitations in the connection design.
End-plate stiffener layout and geometry for 8ES.
Eight-bolt stiffened extended end-plate 8ES geometry. Column with attached collar corner assemblies. For SMF, the required shear strength of the panel zone, per the AISC Seismic Provisions, shall be determined from the summation of the probable maximum moments at the face of the column.
This process shall be repeated until 12 crack-free samples are obtained prior to production. Based on the available data, beams with RBS connections that support a concrete structural slab are not required to have a supplemental brace at the RBS.
This permits some variation in the placement of the lateral support to allow economical Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications,incl. Unless specified to be removed by the engineer of record, weld tabs shall not be removed when used in this location.
Determine size of fillet weld connecting collar corner assemblies to column using the following aisv This resulted in premature weld failure in specimen CR4 failure occurred at about 0.
The special seismic weld access hole has specific aics on the size, shape and finish of the access hole.
Current Standards | American Institute of Steel Construction
The size, shape and finish requirements for the special access hole are specified in AWS D1. In aiisc cases, the definitions given in the body of the Standard govern.
For the same induced curvature, deep beams will experience greater strains than shallower beams. When both axes of a column participate in a moment frame, columns should be evaluated for the ability to remain essentially elastic while beams framing to both column axes undergo flexural hinging. These checks are comparable to those used for other prequalified connections. Check that the edge distance for the beam flange holes satisfies the AISC Specification requirements.
These limitations are based on conditions, demonstrated by testing and analytical evaluation, for which reliable connection behavior can be attained.
Because weld tabs are located at the ends of welds, any remaining weld defects at aizc weld-end removal areas may act as external notches and fracture initiation sites and are therefore removed. Inelastic deformation is expected for approximately one beam depth beyond the end of the flange plate, and limited yielding is expected in the flange plate.
