A flange connection is one which connects a beam to the flange of the column such that bending about the strong axis of the column will result upon application of beam loads. This paper is primarily concerned with the discussion of the behavior and design of interior beam-to-column connections under static symmetrical loadings. The results of full scale tests carried out at Lehigh University on these types of connections are used as a benchmark check to provide the necessary confirmation of the validity of the current as well as the proposed design rules and procedures.
