I remember two instances where a non bearing type splice is adopted.
1) When the engineer wants to avoid milling of column ends due to non-availability of adequate fabrication facility or from cost consideration. Milling seems to be expensive.
2) When uplift and moment in column result in a flange force (tension) which is comparable to compression in column flange due to downward load and moment in other load combination. In this case the splice plate and bolts are to carry all the flange forces. Hence, milling of column ends are not necessary and a gap may be provided.

First of all thanks to all the members for sharing their technical issues even though there are silent observers like me.
I have one query regarding bearing and non bearing column splice connections. In column splice bearing connection, Ends are prepared for contact in bearing, hence loads are primarily transferred from upper column to lower column through ends of contact and only some of the loads through cover plates. But in Non bearing connection(There will be a gap between upper and lower column), Loads are primarily transferred through Flange and web cover plates. My doubt is where exactly the non bearing connection will come into the picture from practical point of view? Why should we provide gap between members with respect to practical application?
