AISC DESIGN GUIDE METHOD DETAILS


Positive Moment

Beam side:

Negative Moment

Column side:

Beam side:

Depending on the thin or thick plate method chosen (if 'optimum' is selected, the
method allowing the maximum capacity is considered) and depending on axial
forces that might scale down moment capacity, the moment resisting capacities
as previously reported are considered case by case.
