Extended stiffened end-plate bolted joints are widely used in seismic resistant steel frames. In the United States of America (USA) this type of joint is seismically pre-qualified according to AISC 358-16. At the present time, prequalification criteria for different types of bolted joints are also under development in Europe within the framework of the EQUALJOINTS (i.e. European pre-QUALified steel JOINTS) research project. The design criteria and detailing rules proposed by this European project for extended stiffened end-plate joints differ from AISC criteria in some respects. Therefore, the aim of this work is to verify and to compare the effectiveness of both design procedures through the results of a comprehensive parametric study based on finite element (FE) simulations. The FE results show that both AISC and European design procedures can guarantee the formation of a plastic hinge in the beam under cyclic loading. However, under column loss scenarios the European connections are more ductile than those designed according to both AISC 358-16 and AISC 341-16. In addition, it is investigated the possibility to use heavy columns satisfying the resistance requirements without stiffeners (i.e. continuity plates and supplementary web plates). The comparison between the response of the joints with and without stiffened columns shows that heavy unstiffened columns can be adopted without appreciably modifying the joint response.
