In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Several factors determine safety and reliability of steel structures. Structural connections are one of the crucial components, playing an essential role in this regard. With the higher capacity of present-day structural members, namely hybrid fabricated columns, it is imperative to design connections capable of taking advantage of this opportunity. The proposed modular pre-fabricated connection, which is investigated in this research, is shown to be a practical choice for filling this gap. The moment and rotation capacity of this innovative connection allows its use in various moment-resisting frames. It can minimise on-site welding, and increase the construction speed, and quality.
