New sections can be added to cold rolled joints by configuring new entries in the AstorRules AstorRules database using the "Table Editor" application from Graitec Advance Manager.
The Database is opened using the "Open ODBC" option.

Section entries must be added to the "JointsGUIAllowedSections" table in the AstorRules Database.

How are new sections added for elements in cold rolled joints?

Fill out a new row in the "JointsGUIAllowedSections" table, as follows:

» Add a unique number in the "Key" column.
» Fill the code name of the joint in "JointName" column.
» In "JointControl", enter the code name of the element for which the implementation of new sections is made.

See the following list with the code names for all cold rolled joints and corresponding elements:

Double/Single purlin plate/tee/folded plate/angle/custom cleat connection and Lap purlin plate
» "JointName" - DbPurlinSplicePlate
» "JointControl"
- Sleeve (sections are added in the sleeve element)
- Stay (sections are added in the stays element)

» In the "AllowedSectionType" column, select the section type, "Section class" or "Section shape" , from the drop-down list. The "Section class" type allows the assignment of a section class (e.g. Metsec, Kingspan, HEA ). The "Section shape" allows the assignment of a section shape (e.g. I sections, C sections, T sections).

How are new sections added for elements in cold rolled joints?

» Fill in the "AllowedSection" column, the intern name of the section which is found in "ProfileMasterTable" , in the AstorProfiles database. For "Section class" the section name is found in the "TypeNameText" column. For "Section shape" the section name is found in "SubTypeName"
