Structural steel special moment frames (SMF) are typically comprised of wide flange beams, columns, and beam-column connections. Connections are proportioned and detailed to resist internal forces (flexural, axial and shear) that result from imposed displacement as a result of wind or earthquake ground shaking. The anticipated seismic behavior of the SMF system is long period, high displacement motion, with well distributed inelastic demand shared by all participating beam-column connections. This design example follows the provisions of AISC 358 for the RBS connection type for the steel SMF seismic force resisting system.
