Defining Connections: Beam and Column Splices Connections

Member Configuration

The connection rule must be applied to both sides of the splice (either beam to beam or column to column)

Available Connection Types

The following Splice Connections are currently supported in RISAConnection:

  • Shear Splices (Beam to Beam, Column to Column)

  • Beam Moment Splices (Direct Weld, End Plate, Flange Plate)

  • Column Moment Splices (Direct Weld, End Plate, Flange Plate)

Specific Connection Requirements

  • For beam to beam and column to column splices, both members must be oriented in the same direction.

  • Both beams/columns must be wide flanges
