Specification for the Design, Fabrication and Erection of Structural Steel for Buildings

inactive
Organization: AISC
Publication Date: 1 November 1978
Status: inactive
Page Count: 166
scope:

Subject to the limitations contained herein, simple and continuous beams, braced and unbraced planar rigid frames, and similar portions of structures rigidly constructed so as to be continuous over at least one interior support,* may be proportioned on the basis of plastic design, i.e., on the basis of their maximum strength. This strength, as determined by rational analysis, shall be not less than that required to support a factored load equal to 1.7 times the given live load and dead load, or 1.3 times these loads acting in conjunction with 1.3 times any specified wind or earthquake forces.

Rigid frames shall satisfy the requirements for Type 1 construction in the plane of the frame, as provided in Sect. 1.2. This does not preclude the use of some simple connections, provided that the provisions of Sect. 2.3 are satisfied. Type 2 construction is permitted for members between rigid frames. Connections joining a portion of a structure designed on the basis of plastic behavior with a portion not so designed need be no more rigid than ordinary seat-and-top-angle or ordinary web connections.

Where plastic design is used as the basis for proportioning continuous beams and structural frames, the provisions relating to allowable working stress, contained in Part 1, are waived. Except as modified by these rules, however, all other pertinent provisions of Part 1 shall govern.

It is not recommended that crane runways be designed continuous over interior vertical supports on the basis of maximum strength. However, rigid frame bents supporting crane runways may be considered as coming within the scope of the rules.
