Classification of framed systems based on beam-to-column joint performance

Session

Description

The construction industry is currently facing its biggest transformation as a direct result of the accelerated changes that society is experiencing. Steel construction combines a number of unique features that make it an ideal solution for many applications in the construction industry. In comparison to some other fields, the design procedures for joints and connections have significantly evolved in the last decades as a result of the progressive awareness by practitioners of the significant contribution of joints and connections to the global cost of structures. The steel framed systems can be classified with respect to different criteria, each of them associated with specific aims. By focusing attention on the most commonly used criteria, which are also considered by international standards, the following discriminating elements can be selected for frame classification. This paper presents classification of framed systems in steel constructions based on beam-to-column joint performance.
