The proposed building for this study is four-storeyed steel frame building in Mandalay area. The structure is composed of special moment resisting frame in seismic zone 4. The overall height of the building is 63ft and it is rectangular shape. The total length and width of the building are 58ft and 34ft respectively. All structural analysis and design of the superstructure of the building are carried out by using ETABS software (Extended Three Dimensional Analysis of Building Systems). The main aim of this study is to understand the connections of steel frame building. Required data for design specification of structural elements are considered according to AISC-LRFD (American Institute of Steel Construction-Load and Resistance Factor Design) 1993. Structural steel used in the building is A36 Grade 36 steel. Wide flanges W-sections are used for frame members. Connections are designed with bolted and welded connection. Bearing type connection with A325 high-strength bolts and fillet weld E70 electrodes with SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding) process are considered.
