Modelling two-sided connections in steel frame structures

Damir Markulak, Darko Ivanušić

Abstract

Performance modelling procedures for two-sided connections, based on EN 1993-1-8, are critically analyzed. Possibilities offered by the finite element method in the sphere of determining behaviour of connections, and this by adding in-plane finite elements to a standard structural model in the connection zone around the web panel of the pier, are determined. Thus the real geometry of connection is taken into account, the iterative procedure becomes unnecessary, and the modelling complexity is not significantly increased.
