Moment connections play a vital
role for the intended performance of steel Special or Intermediate Moment
Frames in a seismic event. The lessons learned from the 1994 Northridge
Earthquake drastically changed the way that moment connections are designed. This
presentation will provide a historic account of the development that led to the
current design and construction practice as required in AISC 341 and AISC 358. The
number of prequalified connections contained in AISC 358 was increased from two
in its 2005 edition to ten in the current edition. The prequalification
process, limitations, and general design process contained in this standard
will also be highlighted.
