Synopsis. Background Issues Surrounding the Detailed Design of Moment Resisting Connections

Moment connections are crucial to many common types of steel structure. Despite substantial research there are no fully agreed design procedures for such connections. The SCI/BCSA Connections Group has been working to develop standardised approaches to moment connections and will shortly publish Joints in Steel Construction - Moment Connections. Within the National Steel Construction week a discussion will take place at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London on Thursday, 18 May 1995, jointly sponsored by the Institution of Structural Engineers, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine and the Steel Construction Institute. This discussion will review the principal decisions that underpin the development of these standardised methods. D.G. Brown
