# How can I enter a head plate at a frame joint for the stability analysis of a frame beam in STEEL EC3?

You can, for example, calculate a warp spring in the case of General Method in order to consider the connecting column or end plate (see the figure).

The following types of warp stiffening are available in the "Edit Warp Spring" dialog box:

• End plate
• Channel section
• Angle
• Connecting column
• Cantilevered portion
