This research aims to develop a joint configuration with multi-fuse energy dissipative mechanism where the maximum portion of energy is dissipated by the replaceable components of the connection – tapered cover plates. The results will inform engineers the efficient and effective design of joint between I-section beams and tubular columns in seismic-resistant moment frame.
