Abstract: Modern codes contain application rules based essentially on monotonic tests that allow the design of welded connections between a profile with H section and a plate or a beam flange without transverse stiffeners in the H section. The validity of such designs has been tested in cyclic plastic conditions on 5 specimens. The results indicate that the design procedure in codes is on the safe side in cyclic conditions.
Keywords: Plate-beam, steel, strength, welds, cyclic.
