Abstract

Using a nonlinear stochastic finite element method already developed by the authors, the reliability of steel frames with partially restrained connections is evaluated using the strength and serviceability limit states. It is observed that steel frames with partially restrained connections designed for strength alone may not satisfy the serviceability requirements, making serviceability the governing limit state.
