View NCCI for Section 6: Structural joints connecting H or I sections

Taken from BS EN 1993-1-8: 2005

Design model for simple column bases- axially loaded I section columns  (SN037)
This NCCI provides rules for determining either the design resistance or the required dimensions of base plates of simple columns, i.e. columns which are predominantly loaded in axial compression. While this NCCI is limited to covering symmetrical I section column bases, the rules given can be easily extended to bases of hollow section columns.
Keywords:
baseplate; pinned base

Design of fixed column base joints  (SN043)
This NCCI provides the rules for the design of fixed column base joints. The rules are limited to covering the design of symmetric un-stiffened base plate joints of I section columns subjected to normal force, shear force and moment about the column major axis. The design of a shear nib, if required, is covered by NCCI SN021. The rules given can be easily extended to bases of other types of column sections.

Design of portal frame apex connections  (SN042)
This NCCI provides information on the design method for a bolted apex moment connection. It includes several simplifications which are explained throughout the document, to obtain simpler but conservative calculations. This NCCI references repeatedly to SN041 to benefit from the common approach to design apex and eaves connections and therefore only presents those contents specific for apex.

Design of portal frame eaves connections  (SN041)

Design of simple column bases with shear nibs  (SN021)
The types of column bases concerned by the present NCCI are the simple column bases described in SN037, and the fixed column bases described in SN043. The shear resistance developed by friction between the column base plate in compression and the joint material (grout), as calculated in SN037, is often adequate for most typical simple base plate joints and fixed base plate joints. For simple base plate joints, if there is axial tension acting shear resistance by friction cannot be developed. For fixed base plates, shear resistance by friction alone may not suffice when high shear is combined with a low moment and either low axial compression or axial tension.

Initial sizing of fin plate connections  (SN016)
This NCCI provides rules for the initial sizing of the components of fin plate connections for a 'Simple joint'. The rules apply to a bolted connection using non-preloaded bolts (i.e. a Category A: Bearing type bolted connection).

fin plate; simple connection
