Ductility analysis of bolted extended end plate beam-to-column connections in the framework of the component method
Ana M. Girao Coelho, Luis Simoes da Silva and Frans S. K. Bijlaard

    The rotational behaviour of bolted extended end plate beam-to-column connections is evaluated in the context of the component method. The full moment-rotation response is characterized from the force-deformation curve of the individual joint components. The deformability of end plate connections is mostly governed by the bending of the column flange and/or end plate and tension elongation of the bolts. These components form the tension zone of the joint that can be modelled by means of
