RISAConnection assumes by default that your vertical brace connection is a one-sided connection without any outside influence or load transfer from other connected elements.  Using this assumption, the design shear and axial force at the beam to column sub-connection is determined using simple statics per the Uniform Force Method in the AISC Steel Design Manual. […]
