Behavioral study of connections using moment - rotation curve for analyzing different types ofconnections and also the concept of strength, ductility and rigidity of steel connections are important. One ofthe most common connections in bending frames of steel structures is beam to column connections with flangeplates. A correct perception about structural behavior of beam to column connections and also appropriateknowledge of their force transmission and their behavior in modeling and analysis of the steel structures areessential. In present study, beam to column steel connection with flange plate under monotonic loading, bothanalytical and experimental would be investigated. The obtained results showed that moment - rotation curvesof experimental sample and finite element (F.E.) model are reasonably close to each other. As a result, F.E.method could be an appropriate tool to investigate the behavior of these connections which would significantlydecrease number of trial and error approaches.
