One of the most usual choices for the connection between the different structural members in steel structures is the bolted connection. The later provide a high level of deformation capacity for the whole structure and a level of stiffness comparable to that of fully welded connections. Top and seated angle with double web angle bolted connections are primarily used for beam-to-column joints. The most important factor for the structural response of beam-tocolumn connections is the rotational stiffness because it affects the behavior of the overall structural steel frame. For this purpose, many experimental tests have been recently conducted to obtain moment-rotation curves. Considering the moment-rotation curves obtained from experimental tests, a simplified analytical model has been suggested to predict the behavior of the connection by fitting techniques. The aim of the present paper is, from one side, the development of a moment-rotation curve for bolted top and seat angle connection with double web angle by means of a proposed theoretical model whose validity checked by comparison with experimental data, and from the other side, the determination of the appearing prying forces in the bolts by means of a simplified and reliable model.
