Abstract

A new beam-to-column and bracing-to-frame connection that can tolerate high rotational and shear overload is described. The connection is a self-contained separate entity that comprises two parallel attachment plates between which two circular tubes are laid and fixed through welding. The whole combination can also be produced by extrusion, where the plates are laid in an orthogonal relation with the axis of bending. In the welded version, the two plates are laid in a parallel relation with the axis of bending.
