During the European research project entitled EQUALJOINTS (European pre-Qualified steel JOINTS) , which recently concluded, the matter of providing a set of pre-qualification procedures for moment resisting beam-to-column connections which are currently used in Europe has been addressed. During the experimental campaign 24 specimens with bolted extended end-plate connections with haunches were tested. The current paper presents the numerical model which has been developed such that numerical testing may be performed to further investigate specific details. In what concerns the material, an isotropic material model has been calibrated and used based on tensile tests of coupons extracted from the specimens to model the actual plastic behaviour. Moreover, the imperfections of the beam have been taken into account using a bucking analysis to model as accurate as possible the specimens tested. The interaction between parts has been modelled using contacts with different interaction laws. The model used for the bolt has been calibrated such that the preloading and failure replicate the behaviour of the actual bolts used in the experiments.
