Abstract
The beam-to-column connections in most of the pallet rack structures made of thin-walled steel sections are of the clip-on type. These connections are of a semi-rigid nature and have a non-linear moment–rotation relationship, which has to be determined experimentally. The experimental methods described in the European standard (EN 15512: 2009) and the American standard (ANSI MH 16.1: 2008) are different. This paper presents a series of test results determining the beam-to-column connection cha...
