Abstract Studying the response details of steel moment connections is very important due to the role of connections in moment resisting frames. The aims of this research were: i) to study the damage indices of steel material including: Pressure Index, Mises Index, Equivalent Plastic Strain Index, Triaxiality Index, and Rupture Index and ii) to compare these indices at connections of steel moment frames under earthquake loads. To achieve this, time history nonlinear dynamic analysis is performed using selected earthquake records on 2D model of special steel frame with ten storey and one bay to determine maximum rotations of connections. Then, damages indices of the selected connections under maximum rotation of records are investigated with selecting two types of moment connections. The results indicate that damage indices are dependent on type of connection, location of surveying, and rotations caused by earthquake movements. This dependency is very considerable for Equivalent Plastic Strain Index and Ruptureindices
