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.

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. The connections are designed in accordance with Eurocode 3 and its UK National Annexes.
 
This publication is cited in the UK National Annex; Joints designed in accordance with the principles within this publication can be classed as nominally pinned without calculation of connection stiffness.
 
Resistance tables are provided for the commonly used connection types, including partial depth end plates, fin plates, splices and column bases. A new full depth end plate (i.e. welded to both flanges) has been introduced, which offers a significantly increased tying resistance compared to a partial depth end plate. Detailed design checks are included to cover non-standard joints and facilitate the development of design software. 

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 resulting from an incorrect set of expressions for the alpha value (Check 11), which led to errors when the lowest bolt was some distance from the flange. Corrected pages are available to download from the Steelbiz website at the following address: http://www.steelbiz.org/Home/GenerateResourceView?ResourceID=1005975

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)
