The 14 papers in this special issue document the results of research undertaken during Phase 2 of the FEMA/SAC research study to address various design and construction issues that resulted from the observed behavior of welded steel frames following the Northridge earthquake. This collection includes a number of experimental studies that identify and verify reliable and cost-effective long-term solutions to improve the seismic performance of steel moment connections. Topics covered include: general issues influencing connection performance; welded unreinforced beam-column moment connections; Reduced Beam Section (RBS) concept; plate-reinforced connections in a variety of detailing schemes, including the use of welded plates and welded flange plates; and the application of fracture-tough weld overlays. Papers also discuss performance prediction and evaluation methods that allow design professionals to determine the confidence level of satisfying a performance level for a given hazard.
