How can I retroactively apply a reinforcement to a modeled downstand beam?


The reinforcement of a cross-section can be applied as follows:

  • Model the corresponding additional member.
  • Divide the original and the new member at the same uniform distances, depending on where you want to connect (right-click the member → "Divide Member" option).
  • Connect them by using rigid members/couplings, see Figure 01.
