Beam Splice Moment Connection
This is a beam splice moment connection. The flange plates and bolots in this beam splice must be capable of transferring all the flange force from one side to the other. The web plate and bolts may help to resist moment, but their primary function is to transfer shear across the splice.
This moment connection has flange plates on the outside only. In some connections it may be necessary to have plates inside the flanges as well.
