Hi, so, would you consider the connection detailed here as fixed or pinned during your structural analysis?

  • $\begingroup$ Just go with pinned if you really have to. It might be a little bit less economical but still correct results. $\endgroup$ – Mohammad Nov 29 '18 at 16:25
  • $\begingroup$ I would say that the connection is supposed to be fixed. The fact that the flanges are able to transmit the force to the columns would clearly suggest that. But where I work it's always taken as pinned. So I was wondering why be so conservative? $\endgroup$ – Mwendwa Kiko Dec 1 '18 at 7:53
