AbstractA simplified procedure that results in a significant reduction of the computation time and effort in the design of single plate framing connections is presented herein. This simplified method is based upon the current design procedure which is applicable to partially restrained shear connections. A total of 140 steel beams with 700 analyses and 500 composite beams were used to develop the simplified method. Tables are provided for the design of most commonly used connections. The simplified single plate design is applicable for fully tightened 3/4, 7/8, and 1. inch A325 or A490 bolts used in either standard round or slotted holes, or snug tight A325 or A490 bolts in standard holes. These studies have led to a single table of the restraint design moments which greatly simplifies the design procedure.
