Article summary:

1. AISC358-16 provides design criteria for fully restrained extended end-plate bolted joints, but partially restrained joints can also be adopted in Europe if their ductility and rotation capacity is experimentally proven.

2. Partially restrained stiffened end-plate joints are more effective than the corresponding unstiffened end-plate configurations in dual frame structures, and have larger low-cycle fatigue resistance compared to traditional fully welded moment connections.

3. The threshold of flexural resistance of connections and their corresponding local ductility are important factors to consider when adopting partially restrained joints, as weaker connections may lead to larger rotation demands that exceed joint ductility. Extending the concept of partially restrained end-plate bolted connections within the framework of AISC358-16 and AISC341-16 is a promising possibility.
