Abstract : Fifteen SAP90 computer models were developed and tested in this study to facilitate investigation into the effect of various joint parameters on the stress distribution of a welded flange-bolted web connection. Parameters varied within these models were the column stiffener thickness, column flange thickness, column web thickness, and beam cope size. (MM)
