Default End restraints


I've been playing with SB4 demo in a non serious way (nothing life threatening, but just estimating what sort of loads attic beams could have imposed upon them for an L/360 deflection).

My attic beams run the full with of the house and have centre support as well as at the ends.

Given they sit on wall plates and are nailed to those and the rafters, I would be inclined to treat the ends as having lateral restrained, but are free to rotate - and possibly the centre as being fully restrained.

Is there a way in SB4 that I can add restraint conditions?

Many thanks, Tim
