The Fremont Union High School District Adult Education and District Office is a single-story 27,000 square foot structural steel building. The client specifically requested an all-bolted connection for their moment frames since it was written in the specifications. Simpson Strong-Tie was able to provide them with Yield-Link moment connections which require no field welding.
To streamline the structural analysis and connection design using the Simpson Strong-Tie Yield-Link moment connections, we have created tools and a design guide to assist Designers. Our supporting software plugins can help you quickly plan, model and document complete designs according to your project's unique specifications—all while staying on time and within budget.
