There have been many studies performed on steel beam-column connections, and many connection details that can improve seismic performance and connection strength have been developed and are in use. However, the conventional type of connection with a bracket is preferred in Korea's construction market. This study develops, by experiment and theoretical analysis, an easy-to-construct beam-column connection that also ensures the flexural behaviour of the weak axis connection so that the steel structure system can be used in constructing low-rise buildings. This study also proposes basic data for structural design and construction of the beam-column connection of the H-shaped column's weak axis.
