CON1001: Moment End Plate - Column Sidelogin to downloadConnections26-Aug-09Kevin Cowie
Standard moment end plate connections (MEP) have been developed by Steel Construction New Zealand Inc. The design procedures are presented in Structural Steelwork Connections Guide: Design Procedures, SCNZ 14- 1:2007 (Hyland et al, 2008). The connection details are given in table form ...
CON1002: CHS Collar Jointslogin to downloadConnections26-Aug-09Kevin Cowie
This article presents a method for designing the collar joints of a moment connection between an I section beam and a circular hollow section (CHS) column. The procedure is developed principally for the semi-rigid flange bolted joint (FBJ). However the principles can ...
CON1101: Semi-Rigid Sliding Hinge Jointlogin to downloadConnections26-Aug-09Kevin Cowie
The Sliding Hinge Joint (SHJ) is a new semi-rigid joint system developed for moment resisting steel frames. It has the ability to remain rigid under in-service conditions or ultimate state wind loading, and to rotate under severe earthquake loadings, returning to the ...
CON1201: Web Side Plate Rotation Capacitylogin to downloadConnections18-Dec-13Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
The Steel Construction New Zealand publication Steel Connect (SCNZ 14.1 and SCNZ 14.2) provides structural engineers with a rapid and cost-effective way to specify the majority of structural steelwork connections, in accordance with accepted fabrication industry norms. Specification of these ...
CON1301: Heavy Brace Gusset Plate Connections for Braced Steel Frameslogin to downloadConnections20-Jul-11Alistair Fussell
Heavy brace gusset connections for the purposes of this paper are defined as gusset plates that connect large tubes (circular and square) or buckling restrained braces used in braced frames (concentric and eccentric) for medium and high rise applications. This ...
CON1302: Light Brace Cleat Connections for Braced Steel frameslogin to downloadConnections25-May-11Alistair Fussell
Light bracing cleat connections are defined as unstiffened cleats that connect light bracing such as flat bars, rods or small tubes sections (round or square) to beams or columns (figure 1). These types of bracing systems are typically used in ...
CON1303: Heavy Brace Gusset Design Examplelogin to downloadConnections27-Jul-11Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
This worked example illustrates the ductile design of brace/beam/column gusset plate connection. The example is based on the design approach presented in Steel Advisor CON1301. ...
CON3001: Transverse Slotted Holes Design Bearing Strengthlogin to downloadConnections27-Oct-09Kevin Cowie
No distinction is made in the Steel Structures Standard NZS 3404 (SNZ, 2007) between the design ply bearing capacity for a long slotted hole in which the slot is perpendicular to the direction of the bearing load and a standard ...
CON3101: Bolted Splices in Compression – Splice Plate Member Checkslogin to downloadConnections24-Feb-12Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
The Steel Construction New Zealand publication Steel Connect (SCNZ 14.1 and SCNZ 14.2) provides structural engineers with a rapid and cost-effective way to specify the majority of structural steelwork connections, in accordance with accepted fabrication industry norms. Specification of these ...
