General
  • Beam to Column joint category: connection possible as joint of the beam to the column flange as well as joint of the column to the girder flange
  • Beam to Beam joint category: design of beam joints as both moment resisting end plate connections and rigid splice connection
  • Automatic export of model and load data possible from RFEM or RSTAB
  • Bolt sizes from M12 to M36 with the strength grades 4.6, 4.8, 5.6, 5.8, 6.8, 8.8 und 10.9 as long as the strength grades are available in the selected National Annex
  • Almost any bolt spacing and edge distances (a check of the allowable distances is performed)
  • Beam strengthening with tapers or stiffeners on the top and bottom surface
  • End plate connection with and without overlap
  • Connection with pure bending stress, pure normal force load (tension joint) or combination of normal force and bending possible
  • Calculation of connection stiffnesses and check if a hinged, semi-rigid or rigid connection exists
End plate connection in a beam-column setup
  • Joint beams or columns can be stiffened with tapers on one side or with stiffeners to one or both sides
  • Wide range of possible stiffeners of the connection (e.g. complete or incomplete web stiffeners)
  • Up to ten horizontal and four vertical bolts possible
  • Connected object possible as constant or tapered I-section
  • Designs:
    • Ultimate limit state of the connected beam (such as shear or tension resistance of the web plate)
    • Ultimate limit state of the end plate at the beam (e.g. T-stub under tensile stress)
    • Ultimate limit state of the welds at the end plate
    • Ultimate limit state of the column in the area of the connection (e.g. column flange under bending – T-stub)
    • All designs are performed according to EN 1993-1-8 and EN 1993-1-1 
Moment resisting end plate joint
  • Two or four vertical, and up to ten horizontal bolt rows possible
  • Joint beams can be stiffened with tapers on one side or with stiffeneres to one or both sides
  • Connected objects are possible as constant or tapered I-sections
  • Designs:
    • Ultimate limit state of the connected beams (such as shear or tension resistance of the web plates)
    • Ultimate limit state of the end plates at the beam (e.g. T-stub under tensile stress)
    • Ultimate limit state of the welds at the end plates
    • Ultimate limit state of the bolts in the end plate (combination of tension and shear)
Rigid splice plate connection
  • For the flange plate connection, up to ten bolt rows one behind the other possible
  • For the web plate connection, up to ten bolt rows possible each in vertical and horizontal direction
  • Material of the cleat can be different from the one of the beams
  • Designs:
    • Ultimate limit state of the joint beams (e.g. net cross-section in the tension area)
    • Ultimate limit state of the cleat plates (e.g. net cross-section under tensile stress)
    • Ultimate limit state of the single bolts and the bolt groups (e.g. shear resistance design of the single bolt)
