Default Re: Adding steel colums to support beams

You add the two columns in as separate items. Their position in the Project Manager list must be somewhere below the beam. You can enter each reaction using the B/F facility within the column load edit dialog. Generally the simplest detailing is to support the beam on cap plates, i.e. a plate welded to the cut end of the column. With a cap plate give the load a position of 1,2,3 or 4 as per the diagram and an offset of 0. This denotes that the load is being taken as acting at the face of the column, generating a moment of load x column depth/2.
