Connection Design for Moment Frames and Braced Frames
4-Part Webinar Series
This 4-part webinar series will offer essential instruction in the design of moment and bracing connections. The first two sessions will focus on the design of the most common types of moment connections. The third session will provide the basics on the design of moment and bracing connections in high-seismic regions. The final session will focus on the design of light and heavy bracing connections, making use of the Uniform Force Method. There will be design examples throughout, illustrating how to properly apply AISC standards to the design of these critical connections. Take this course, and be ready to immediately use it on the design of your next moment or braced frame!

This session will address wind and low-seismic moment connection design. Common moment configurations, either with the beam flange welded directly to the column, or with flange plates connecting the beam to the column, will be presented. Local limit states for the column will be discussed and applied in a design example.
This session will review the prying phenomenon, and its effect on certain moment connections. End-plate and tee-stub moment connections will be discussed. Design examples will be presented to demonstrate concepts.
This session will provide an overview of seismic connections for engineers that don’t typically perform seismic design. The concepts of ductile mechanisms and capacity design will be introduced. The characteristics of special and intermediate moment frame connections will be explained, and the current prequalified moment connection types will be discussed. The session will also cover the design of special concentrically braced frame connections. Brief design examples, highlighting key calculations for both moment connections and bracing connections, will be presented to demonstrate concepts.
This session will present information on light and heavy bracing connections, and discuss the differences and similarities between the two. The applicable limit states for each will be identified, and demonstrated in design examples. The examples will apply the Uniform Force Method for analysis and design.
