When calculating a connection with the FRAME-JOINT Pro add-on module, a message appears stating that the value is out the allowable range (provisional value: 160, minimum value 200). What does the mentioned note mean?

Answer

It is often the case that the member dimensions do not match.
In the example model, the beam has a flange width of 200 mm and the column support of 160 mm.

This joint is not allowed in the add-on module because the flange width of the column should be at least as large as the flange width of the structural element to be connected. As soon as the cross-sections are defined according to this rule, the connection design is also satisfactory.
