Structural integrity has become a major issue in the assessment of risks under extreme service conditions. Will the beam end shear connections perform adequately when a fire causes the member to deform into a catenary? How does one design for tie forces? Are connections capable of deforming sufficiently without prompting failures in adjacent structural components? This presentation addresses all of these concerns.
