Beam to Girder Single Plate Connection Example Using ASDIP STEEL

By: Javier Encinas, PE | June 25, 2019ASDIP STEEL is a structural engineering software for the design of structural steel members. It includes the design of shear connections based on the AISC 360 provisions. This document is a step-by-step design example of a single-plate beam-to-girder connection.As an example, consider the partial framing plan shown below, which is part of the second floor of a retail building. All member sizes have been specified as 16" deep due to clearance limitations, which will force to cope the beams at top and bottom. Design the single plate connection of the beams to the [...]

Shear Connections: Overview of the Design Process

By: Javier Encinas, PE | January 24, 2017 Shear connections are typically used to connect beams to other beams or columns. Such connections transfer shear, with minimum rotational restraint, as opposed to moment connections. This article is an overview of the AISC provisions for the design of shear connections. Our software ASDIP STEEL will be used to support the discussion. What are the components of a shear connection? A typical shear connection is composed of three parts: support, connector, and beam. The support may be another beam or girder, a column flange, or a column web. The [...]
