This report presents an investigation of the static strength and behaviour of multiplanar connections between I-section beams or plates and circular or rectangular hollow section columns. The overall objective of this project is to reduce the global costs of structural steelwork by developing guidance and preliminary design recommendations for unstiffened connections. This includes welded as well as bolted connections. The results show that no maximum peak is reached for all the tested connections with a rectangular hollow section column, except those with a composite column. All tested connections with a circular hollow section show a peak load.
