Moment Connections for Seismic Applications, Second Edition (developed for use with CSA S16-14)

Second Edition

(Developed for use with CSA S16-14)
This new edition supersedes the first edition published in 2004 and based on FEMA 350, « Recommended Seismic Design Criteria for New Steel Moment Frame Buildings ». Completely revised and expanded to include reduced beam section, bolted unstiffened and stiffened end-plate, and bolted flange plate moment connections, the second edition presents design provisions comparable to those governing the design of generic beam-to-column connections in ANSI/AISC 358, « Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications ».

For the 3rd edition of Moment Connection for Seismic Applications based on CSA S16:19, see Design Module 7

Second Edition

(Developed for use with CSA S16-14)
This new edition supersedes the first edition published in 2004 and based on FEMA 350, « Recommended Seismic Design Criteria for New Steel Moment Frame Buildings ». Completely revised and expanded to include reduced beam section, bolted unstiffened and stiffened end-plate, and bolted flange plate moment connections, the second edition presents design provisions comparable to those governing the design of generic beam-to-column connections in ANSI/AISC 358, « Prequalified Connections for Special and Intermediate Steel Moment Frames for Seismic Applications ».

Intended to be used in conjunction with CSA Standard S16-14 and the National Building Code of Canada 2015, this publication covers common connection types for ductile, moderately ductile and limited ductility moment-resisting frames. It provides design, detailing and fabrication criteria for moment connections as permitted by S16-14 Clause 27 as an alternative to physical testing.

Other notable features include:

• Welded built-up sections
• Box-shape, cruciform-shape and deep W-shape columns
• Expanded geometric validity range
• Specific provisions for various details
• Designation of demand-critical welds
