Butt splice – this connection detail is used to join a beam which has been supplied in 2 pieces for ease of install but which is carrying very little load. The 2 pieces are bolted together via 2 welded end plates of the same section size of the beam. This type of connection is usually applied at 1/3 overall beam length, as the maximum bending moment and stress point of a beam is generally in the middle.
