The connection rule must be applied at the end of the beam (not the column).
The following Column Shear Connections are currently supported in RISAConnection:
Single Clip Angle Shear Connection
Double Clip Angle Shear Connection
Shear Tab Shear Connection
End Plate Shear Connection
Double Clip Angle (Double Sided) Shear Connection
The following Column Moment Connections are currently supported in RISAConnection:
Flange Plate Moment Connection
Direct Weld Moment Connection
Extended End Plate Moment Connection
Partially Extended End Plate Moment Connection
Flush End Plate Moment Connection
Columns may be Wide Flanges, HSS tubes or HSS pipes (shear tab only)
Beams for shear connections may be Wide Flanges, Tapered Wide Flanges or Channels (except for end plate shear)
Beams for moment connections must be Wide Flanges.
Double-sided connections available for clip angle shear connections into the Wide Flange column web. Beams on either side of the web must be within 3" (parallel) to be considered as double-sided.
Skewed shear tab connection available for Wide Flange or HSS tube column (maximum beam skew angle is 45 degrees)
Flange Plate Column Cap Plate Moment Connection only available in RISAConnection
