This title presents a definition of semi-rigid steel structural connections, classification and influence to the structural response of sway and non-sway steel frames. This title features: sources of connection compliance, ductility and the application of the component method for characterization of the joint properties; verification procedures for the available and the required capacity of joints and the design of semi-rigid steel structural connections; and, application of the Finite Element Method for the simulation of the structural response of semi-rigid connections taking into account all prominent nonlinear phenomena (cf. e.g. contact, friction and plasticity).
