Shell model of multiple-row moment I-section end-plate joint
The paper deals with a problem of application of shell elements in the models of multiple-row moment end-plate connections. The extended connection of I-section with a cross-section W760x265x220 made of steel S355 was analyzed. Comparison analysis of FEM, complex volume and shell models has been done. Three cases with different end-plate thickness: 14, 18 and 36 mm were analyzed and compared with the reference results. Comparison of the forces in bolts shows that simplification of the model from volume to shell elements does not greatly affect the distribution of forces in bolts. The presented analysis shows that a relatively simple shell model can be sufficient in the design of multiple-row moment end-plate joints.
