Seismic Design of Bolted Steel Moment-Resisting Frames

This report discusses some issues related to seismic behavior of various types of steel moment-resisting frames used in building structures. However, the emphasis of the report is on the seismic behavior and design of steel moment-resisting frames with bolted beam-to-column connections. A summary of relevant research and applicable code provisions is provided followed by design procedures that can be used to design steel moment-resisting frames. The appendices to the report provide typical details of bolted moment connections, a numerical example and photographs of structures designed and constructed recently using bolted steel moment-resisting frames.
