Moment-transmitting Endplate Connections in Steel Construction, and a Proposed Basis for Flush Endplate Design

The moment-transmitting, welded endplate connection has grown in popularity to the point where it is now believed to be the most widely used beam-to-column connection in building structures. Full utilisation of these connections depenh on a knowledge of behaviour at both ultimate and service loads. The paper attempts to establish the necessary joint characteristics using finite-element-based theoretical modelling. The theoretical results are compared with experimental observations and a limit state design method for flush endplate connections is proposed. The design data presented use a recommended standardisation of details for 'flush' and ‘extended’ endplates. W.M. Jenkins, C.S. Tong and A.T. Prescott
