Steel Connection Design

Steel connection design with ideCAD Structural 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 following the connection type and regulations.

  • Steel Connection design can be classified into three categories:

1- The classification according to moment strength is grouped under three sections: full strength, partial strength, and hinge.

2- According to rotational 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.
