Product Feature

First, it is necessary to select the joint type, design standard, and steel plate and dowel material. For design according to ANSI/AWC - NDS 2015, you can select the design method ASD (Allowable Stress Design) or LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design).

The connected members are imported from the RFEM/RSTAB model. The module automatically checks if all geometric conditions are fulfilled. Alternatively, you can define the connection manually.

Also the loads are imported automatically from RFEM/RSTAB or entered manually in the case of user-defined connection definition. The Geometry window includes steel plate dimensions and fastener layouts.
