Advance Design - Steel Connection

Types of joints - Clip Angle

 

 

Clip Angle connection of Advance Design - Steel Connection module are used for connecting a floor beam to one or two secondary beams, or a column to one or two secondary beams. The attached secondary beams can be sloped to the main. The angles can be bolted or welded to the main beam. The main and secondary elements from the clip angle connection can be defined as I or U sections. The third element can be enabled whenever the clip angle connection is applied on the web of the main element.
