Study on the End-Plate and Angle of Semi-Rigid Connection in the Steel Frame of Beam-Column
Based on the investigation of end plate and angle of semi-rigid connection in the steel frame of beam-column, an analysis of two connection type damage phenomenons, stiffness, bearing capacity and ductility, and then with the experimental results concluded above, the similarity and differences between the two semi-rigid connections can be extensively discussed. And with that， it can naturally be concluded that the end-plate connection is a good load capacity and ductility properties of semi-rigid connection type. These for, the conclusion can provide test basis for the ideal steel structure semi-rig seismic node design and application.
