This thesis has tried to collate and compare the universally available design recommendations for this bolted end plate beam to column type of connection. Three specimens simulating these connections in a multistorey building were designed with the use of these recommendations and tested in an earthquake type loading situation. The results of these tests indicated that most of the design recommendations reviewed herein were valid.
