Joints in steel construction. Moment-resisting joints to Eurocode 3 "The Green Book" (P398)

This publication covers the design of moment-resisting joints in accordance with Eurocode 3. Moment-resisting joints are typically found in portal frames and in continuous construction. This publication is the successor to Joints in steel construction – Moment connections (P207/95), which covers connections designed in accordance with BS 5950. (Published November 2013)

This publication covers the design of moment-resisting joints in accordance with Eurocode 3. Moment-resisting joints are typically found in portal frames and in continuous construction. This publication is the successor to Joints in steel construction – Moment connections (P207/95), which covers connections designed in accordance with BS 5950.
 
The major changes in scope compared to P207/95 are:
  • The adoption of the published design rules in BS EN 1993-1-8 and its UK National Annex. Although most checks are almost identical to those in the earlier publication, some differences will be observed, such as the modest revisions to the yield line patterns and the allowance for the effect of shear in the column web panel.
  • Indicative resistances of connections are given, instead of comprehensive standardised details, recognising that software is most often used for the design of moment-resisting joints.
  • The ‘hybrid’ connections, comprising welded parts and parts connected using pre-tensioned bolts have been omitted, since they have little application in the UK.
 This new publication covers:
  • Bolted end plate connections between beams and columns in multi-storey frames and portal frames (full depth, extended and plate and haunched connections)
  • Welded beam to column connections.
  • Moment-resisting splices.
  • Moment-resisting column bases.
 
Detailed design procedures are included for all the connections, with comprehensive worked examples for each connection type.
 
A complementary publication covering nominally pinned connections is P358, Joints in steel construction: Simple joints to Eurocode 3 is also available.

Joints in steel construction. Simple joints to Eurocode 3 - "The Green Book" (P358)

This publication is one of a series of “Green Books” that cover a range of steelwork connections. This publication provides guidance for nominally pinned joints (the most common joint type in steel building structures) that primarily carry vertical shear and, as an accidental limit state, tying forces. (Published 2011). NOTE: The tables in pages T-42, T-43, T-44, T-50, T-51 and T-52 of the first printing of November 2011 contained incorrect values of tying resistance; see the full description for further details.
