This publication covers the design of moment-resisting joints in accordance with Eurocode 3. Moment-resisting joints are typically found in portal frames and in continuous construction. This publication is the successor to Joints in steel construction – Moment connections (P207/95), which covers connections designed in accordance with BS 5950. (Published November 2013)
This publication is one of a series of “Green Books” that cover a range of steelwork connections. This publication provides guidance for nominally pinned joints (the most common joint type in steel building structures) that primarily carry vertical shear and, as an accidental limit state, tying forces. (Published 2011). NOTE: The tables in pages T-42, T-43, T-44, T-50, T-51 and T-52 of the first printing of November 2011 contained incorrect values of tying resistance; see the full description for further details.
Composite construction has played a major role in the commercial success of the steel construction sector in the UK. However, changes to profiled steel decking over the past decade have had the adverse effect of reducing shear stud resistances in some common situations.
Extensive research in this area has led to this new (electronic only) publication. The rules for shear stud resistance and minimum degree of connection, complement those given in Eurocode 4. In so doing they will enable valid designs to be produced for a broader range of beams.
