Behaviour of flush end-plate beam-to-column joints under bending and axial force
Luis Simoes da Silva, Luciano R. O. de Lima , Pedro C. G. da S. Vellasco and Sebastiao A. L. de Andrade

    Steel beam-to-column joints are often subjected to a combination of bending and axial forces. The level of axial forces in the joint may be significant, typical of pitched-roof portal frames, sway frames or frames with incomplete floors. Current specifications for steel joints do not take into account the presence of axial forces (tension and/or compression) in the joints. A single empirical limitation of 10% of the beam
