RF-/JOINTS Steel - Pinned | Design
All joint types are considered with the moment release at the column flange or at the column web in the case of a rotated column. Therefore, the module determines the eccentric moment of a web cleat and fin plate connection, which additionally affects the bolt group at the girder flange.
Further eccentric moments may result from the locations of the angles and sheets. In the case of cleat connection, the forces are transferred separately. Shear forces act on the cleat, tension forces and stabilizing moment are assigned to the bolts. Before the calculation, the connection is checked for geometrical plausibility, for example the bolt hole spacing and edge distance of the bolts.
