  7. Abstract:
  8. Column-base connections are one of the most important elements in steel structures which connect the steel frame to the foundation. Therefore, in structures erected in seismic areas, these connections are critical to convey cyclic inertia forces to the frame. In this research the author performed a parametric study utilizing Finite Elements Method (FEM) to investigate the connection’s cyclic behavior. Primarily, the modeling method is verified and calibrated by the use of available experimental data. Afterwards, the parametric computer models are made. Though some researchers have investigated similar connection types, some components’ parameters like the column’s dimensions have not been studied yet. The mentioned parameter plays an important role in connection’s behavior as it alters the moment distribution in the base plate. In this paper three separate parameters are considered and their individual impact on the total behavior of connection is investigated
