BibTex | RIS | RefWorks Download
The behavior and design of gusset plate connections are reviewed and summarized. The paper first reviews the existing design methods for proportioning gusset plates under monotonic loading as well as under seismic loading. A summary of recent research at the University of Alberta on the monotonic and cyclic behavior of gusset plate connection is then presented. Based on the monotonic test series, a modified design method is proposed for proportioning the gusset plate to support compressive forces from brace members. The cyclic behavior of gusset plate connections is described using the results of experimental and analytical studies. The interaction between the gusset plate and the brace member is considered in the study. Current research programs are presented regarding the effect of various parameters on the cyclic behavior of gusset plate connections and the potential of a bracing system where the bracing member is designed as the strong element and the gusset plate is designed as the weak element.
