    Modeling
  • Difficulty:

    *

Answer

Starting with Advance Design 2009, haunches can be created on steel beams. The haunches modeling options are available in the linear element properties window.

How can I create haunches for steel beams

The haunch can be created at any end of the linear element and also at both extremities of the linear element (Start and End) - in which case the haunches can be identical or may be configured differently.

Haunch parameters

How can I create haunches for steel beams

  • Position: Taking the element axis into account, the haunch position can be set as: Bottom, Top or Top and Bottom.

  • Length. Can be defined as:

    - Ratio (the ratio of the beam length)
    - Value (local axis) (by numerical value relative to the local axis of element)
    - By Projected value.

  • Cross section type:

    - Identical (the same cross section as the beam),
    - Previous shape or Next shape (taking the previous or the next type from the beam's cross section family),
    - Imposed.

  • Height. Can be defined:

    - By Ratio (the ratio of beam height)
    - By Value
