one of the most important structural members that greatly affects the overall performance of the structure is the beam-to-column connection. Undesirable performance and failure of these connections can lead to local failure in the first step, and in the next step,a progressive collapse in the structure and falling. Therefore in this paper, the performance of two prequalified moment connections in the tenth chapter of the national building regulations of Iran against the external blast loads at a distance of 10 meters from a 1-story building in the Abaqus finite element software has been investigated. Thus, we first designed the structure with the seismic criteria, and then we designed the connections manually. Finally, we analyzed the connections in Abaqus finite element software against the blast loading. Results indicate a good response to the BFP connection compared to the WFP welded connection. As well as the percentage of failure of the WFP connection components relative to the percentage failure of the BFP connection components was more than triple. The results of this investigation show that the dominant failure mode is the failure of the joints due to the twisting of the column, consequently the screw connection due to better shapeability,gives a better response under the blast loading.
