Design Guide 9

For structural hollow section column Connections



This design guide has been written to give the design engineer the information needed to design hollow section column connections in the most efficient and economic way.

The guide considers single sided bolted systems,connection classification, simple shear connections, semi-rigid, seismic and rigid connections. Connection to composite conrete filled hollow section columns, splices and bracing and truss connections to hollow columns are also included.

The guide is the 9th design guide in the series published under the general heading "Construction with Hollow Steel Sections"
