Collapse Prevention Design Criteria for Moment Connections in Multi-Story Steel Frames Under Extreme Actions

he paper investigates the role of beam-to-column connections in mitigation the progressive collapse of multi-story steel frame buildings in case of column loss. On this purpose, a set of moment frames with different beam-to-column connections is designed following seismic design criteria for highly dissipative structures to resist seismic actions. Applied Element Method through nonlinear dynamic […]
