"ENDPLMC9" --- END PLATE MOMENT CONNECTIONS

Program Description:
"ENDPLMC9" is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analysis and design of end plate
moment connections per the AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual. Specifically the program can analyze both single
4-tension bolt and 8-tension bolt configurations, as well as the conditions of having moment connections on
each side of the column attached to the column flanges.
This program is a workbook consisting of five (5) worksheets, described as follows:

Double 4-tension bolt end plate moment connections
Single 8-tension bolt end plate moment connection
Double 8-tension bolt end plate moment connections

Program Assumptions and Limitations:


1. This program uses the database of member dimensions and section properties from the "AISC Shapes
Database", Version 3.0 (2001) as well as the AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual (1989).
2. This program is based on the non-seismic specific design procedures found in the following two references:
a. "Moment Connections - End Plate (Static Loading Only)" on pages 4-116 through 4-125
(Static Loading Only)" on pages 4-116 through 4-125, AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual (1989).
b. "Extended End-Plate Moment Connections" - AISC Steel Design Guide Series #4,
by Thomas M. Murray, PhD, P.E., First Edition (AISC 1990).
3. This program also refers to "Extended End-Plate Moment Connections" - AISC Steel Design Guide Series #4,
First Edition (1990), by Thomas M. Murray, PhD, P.E.
4. This program contains numerous comment boxes which contain a wide variety of information including
explanations of input or output items, equations used, data tables, etc. (Note: presence of a comment box
is denoted by a red triangle in the upper right-hand corner of a cell. Merely move the mouse pointer to the
desired cell to view the contents of that particular "comment box".)
