Experimental study on brace to HSS column connection Article


 In Hollow Structural Section (HSS) column, webs are available at both ends of column flanges. Thus, there is an offset between webs and a gusset plate connected to the middle of this column flange. However, in H-shaped column, both the column web and the gusset plate are connected to the middle of the column flange. On the other hand, unlike H-shaped column, HSS column flange does not possess an appropriate support and this problem can induce distortion, out-of-plane deformation, and fracture in HSS column flange.
