This consolidates all the design capacity tables contained in the individual simple connection design guides into one volume for easy reference and comparison. These tables aim to replace the simple connections section of AISC Standardised Structural Connections (3rd edition, 1985) and also provide typical details for web side plate, flexible end plate and angle cleat connections.
The capacity tables have been developed for selected connection configurations covering: steel grade, connection components such as plates or cleats, welds, bolts, hole geometry, bolt pitches and bolt gauges.
For a selected connection configuration, most design calculations are eliminated using the tables except for design checks which relate to the supporting member or general frame design. Information on the design model used for each connection can be found in the relevant design guide for that connection.
