Abstract: Transferring the load from beam to the column by a safe way is considered one of the critical issues which have been studied by many researchers in many fields. The failure of the connection between the column and the beam is one of the major reasons which causes structures failure and has a great effect on the acceleration of collapse. Experimental study has been provided to investigate the transfer part technique as a structural system which aims to keep the failure location at the beams side. This paper presents the finite element modeling to simulate that technique for expanding the research field. A discussion is provided for the effect of increasing the column stiffness through the experimental results. The study indicates that the use of finite element modeling by a specific materials and elements could be given an asymptotic behavior of the behavior of the experimental test.
