When eccentricity occurs in welded connections, the weld must be designed to resist the combined effect of direct shear and the additional shear from the induced moment. Two analysis approaches for the welded connections with eccentric loads are the elastic method and the ultimate strength method, respectively. In AISC design manuals, Tabulated solutions for eccentric loads that included only at a range of specified angles inclined from the vertical direction. This study furnishes a more generalized solution to overcome the coverage problems mentioned above. The theoretical background to evaluate the strength of eccentrically loaded welded connections using the elastic and the ultimate analysis is presented and then followed by a numerical procedure for the analysis of welded connections with eccentric loads that covers all inclined angles from the vertical is introduced. The results come from the new procedure proves that this study can result in a better solution for practicing engineers in their routine design job.
