Steel member connections design is integrated within the structure calculation.
With regard to the steel module, you can choose between different types of connections (flange, square, gusset plates, splice plates, anchor bolts, etc.) and define the geometry with graphical input and guided in compliance with the regulatory indications.
With regard to the wood module, you can define wood-wood connections with metal type connectors for 90° intersections between horizontal beams and/or columns and wood-r.c. connections with socket-type metal connectors between wooden columns and RC foundations or between 90° intersections with horizontal beams and RC columns and/or walls.
In addition, for some situations it is also possible to define a notch type connection, in the contact areas, where the software proceeds to shape the rods appropriately by defining notches in detail and support areas to perform a timely contact tensions check.
The software provides a detailed view of the construction details contextual to the three-dimensional view of the object connection.
With special duplication functions, you can replicate each connection in all the other similar conditions present in the structure.
Please note that connections can only be entered and calculated for some types of sections and for some predefined geometric configurations.
This means that you will not "always" be able to get a full connections check.
