Abstract: A wide-flange girder connection to a concrete-filled steel tube column was recently designed for two low-rise building structures. Preliminary cost estimates indicated that this system was more economical than the more traditional structural steel column counterpart. A methodology to compute strength, stiffness and joint equilibrium is presented. Finally, some differences and limitations of the current U.S. design specifications are discussed.
