Column to Beam Connection
Model to Download
Parameterization of the geometry of a connection of an I-section steel column to an I-section beam via steel bracket and bolts.
A model created by the Dlubal Latam engineering team. The model is also available as a parameterized block on the Dlubal Latam website.
Designing rigid end plate connections is difficult for four-row connection geometries and multi-axis bending stresses, because there are no official design methods.
- I would like to use surface releases to model a bolt connection that can only absorb compressive stresses from the support. Unfortunately, I cannot do this because my model is always unstable. Is there a template model?
- How can I display the contact stresses on a contact solid?
- The calculation of my model results in unrealistically high stresses at many locations. What could be the reason for this?
