Orthogonal and Skewed Shear Connections - Design and Detailing Requirements
Simple shear connections for beam-to-beam and girder-to-column connections are key to safe economical fabrication, erection and structure performance. This paper explores basic connection design requirements and provides guidance on safety and economy of various types of connections. It discusses standard orthogonal and skewed shear connections for wide flange beams to wide flange girders and columns as well as o hollow structural sections (HSS) and concrete supports.
This course is based on a paper which was the basis for the T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award.
