Abstract :

This study presents an experimental study on the behaviour of top and seat T connections with stiffeners. Eighteen full scale semirigid steel top and seat T connections were tested. Of particular interests are the models the resistance, stiffness, rotation capacity, ductility of a joint, and energy dissipation behaviour. The study also looks at the collapse modes of the connections. In addition, in this research, the effects of changes in the dimensions of the connection members on the connection behavior were examined for the T-connection type. This provided information about the optimum sizes of the connection elements. Also, in this study efficiently use residue IPE standard profiles, rather than send them back to the consumption cycle.
