Abstract

The majority of multistory steel framed buildings in the UK are designed such that the connections between the frame elements can be classified as ‘simple’ or ‘semi-rigid’. Current UK design provisions relating to structural integrity and robustness for these types of connections do not currently incorporate dynamic effects such as inertia or strain rate sensitivity. A numerical study has been carried out on a typical UK beam-column simple connection, in which the supported beam connects into the web of the supporting column. The connection has been subjected to a rapid rotation using the finite element software package LS-DYNA. Results and discussion of the numerical study are presented herein; experimental validation of these results is currently being carried out.
