Steel Beam SHS Column Simple Fin Connection Detail

This is a CAD dwg drawing of a Steel Beam SHS Column Simple Fin Connection Detail. Square hollow section ( SHS ) columns are a little more tedious in terms of connection types, since bolts cannot be tightened from the inside.

In order to achieve a simple connection between an IPE steel beam and such SHS column, one way is to weld a fin connection plate with a full penetration butt weld onto the column and then use bolts on-site to connect to the IPE steel beam’s web. This is considered to be a simple connection with no moment resistance. Only axial and vertical loads are being carried onto the steel column.
