Steel connection design is made automatically according to the regulations of Design, Calculation and Construction Principles of Steel Structures (ÇYTHYEDY) (GKT and YDKT), AISC 360-16 (ASD and LRFD). With ideCAD Structural, steel connection calculation, bolt checks, welding checks and plate checks are made automatically in accordance with the connection type and regulations.
Steel Connection design can be classified into 3 categories:
1- The classification according to moment strength is grouped under 3 sections: full strength, partial strength, and hinge.
2- According to roteational rigidity, it is divided into 3, which are rigid, semi-rigid and hinged.
3- According to the rotational capacity, it is classified as highly and moderately ductile.
The computational rules related to moment-resisting and hinged connections are explained in the relevant sub-sections.
