Submi t ted to Professor B. G. Johns ton for cred.i t requirements in Course C.E. 213, Structural Research.
The following comprises a series of. calculations to determine the strength of rigid frame connections of· various designs.
problem is part of a broader
gram of welded rigid frame knee tests now under way in Fritz Laboratory•. The knees fall into two classifications; those having curved or straight haunches and those having ninetydegree reentrant corners.
The metbods of analysis are
based on those offered by F.Bleich1 , and W. R. Osgood2 , and the results of tests conducted by the National Bureau of Standards 3 •
