Wide Flange Beam to HSS Tube Column Moment Connections can now be designed in RISAConnection version 9. HSS tubes may be selected as the supporting column member on either of the two moment connections:
- Column/Beam Direct Weld Moment Connection
- Column/Beam Flange Plates Moment Connection
You may select rectangular or square tubes and all design codes are supported (AISC 13th, 14th, CSA S16-09, and CSA S16-14) for the design of these connections.
Design for these connections is presented in detailed limit state checks just like all other RISAConnection results. Each limit state can be expanded to see the details of the check.
