Structural analysis and design with taken into account the flexibility of the beam to the column connections of steel frameworks takes on importance of the growing development and utilization of new commercial software. However, for design purposes, the beam to the column connection are usually considered to be either pinned or fully rigid, and drastically simplifies the analysis and design procedures. In this paper, a four story of unbraced and concentric braced steel moment resisting frame having different connection stiffness is analysed using linear and nonlinear static procedure. In the finite element modelling, the semi rigid connection is modelled by rotational spring having linear moment and rotation relationship. To account the inelastic behaviour of beam and column members, concentrated plastic hinges based on FEMA 356 are applied for both ends of the member. It was found that, the response quantity of the unbraced frame are influenced by the flexibility connection. However, for the braced frame the effect of the initial connection stiffness parameter on the response quantity can be neglected due to present of the braces. Furthermore, the higher the initial connection stiffness parameter, the smallest the story drift index. Moreover, the present of the braces at the moment resisting frame (braced frame) reduce the sensitivity of the connection stiffness on the behaviour and the performance frame under consideration.
