The intermeshed steel connection (ISC) is a radically new connection approach for gravity, structural steel members. Manufacturable through robotic plasma, laser, and waterjet cutters, the connection requires fewer bolts, and offer faster erection and better disassembly than existing approaches. Forces are transferred through common bearing surfaces at multiple contact points. The structural performances and constructability were studied through multiple small- and large-scale tests, as well as numerical simulation. The ISC can be applied to beam‐to‐beam, column‐to‐column, column‐to‐rafter, and dismountable arrangements. As such, the ISC offers opportunities to make steel construction a more efficient industry that encourages reuse rather than recycling. View this paper.
