An extended steel balcony with point connections to a building. The structure consists of hollow sections with rigid connections between the columns and beams. A frame structure for the installation of laminated safety glass is provided as fall protection.

In the model, the effects of live load and wind are applied using load application areas. The connections to the building are designed as equivalent springs. The calculation of internal forces is performed according to the second-order analysis, using global imperfections for the initial inclination of the structural system in two directions.

The Structure Stability and Steel Design add-ons were used to analyze critical buckling modes and load factors, and to perform all necessary cross-section design and stability analysis.
