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 be applied in general to other types of connections. The design procedure has been taken and slightly modified from (Clifton, 2005).
