Abstract: This paper investigates the behaviour of semi rigid connection with high strength steel by three-dimensional non-

linear numerical modelling. The flush end plate (FEP) connection model is such that end-plate, bolt, beam and column are

represented by solid elements using ANSYS 10.0 software aid. The full interaction between plate and column is simulated by

contact element. The analysis results of the moment- rotation relationship and behaviour characteristic of the connection with

high strength steel are compared and discussed. The moment capacity prediction of flush end plate connections based on EC3

has been shown to be reasonable compared with finite element (FE) modeling. The proposed FE connection model is capable

of predicting the ultimate load capacity and the plastic strain pattern with good accuracy. The model presented gives excellent

results for increasing the connection capacity significantly due to employed higher strength steel section. The four parameter

model is proposed to predict M model through curve fitting for FEP connection with high strength end-plate.
