A tee shear connection is similar to a shear tab in that there is a perceived lack of ductility in the connection which could cause premature fracture in the shop weld or shop bolts, i.e., fracture before the connection is able to absorb the self-limited beam end rotation in a ductile manner. This problem is resolved with a shear tab by two ductility requirements
