RISAFloor, RISA-3D, and Revit can export connection rule and loading information to streamline the design process for a project with numerous connections.  This process helps to quickly create connections with the member shape, geometry, and loading information from the original program. However, there may be times where you want to change some of the exported […]

RISAConnection version 7.0.1 added the option for customized loading in an integrated RISAConnection model.  If you have used RISA-3D or RISAFloor to export connection rules for design in RISAConnection, they also exported over the forces per the solved load combinations. Now, if you want to use different loading, or manually adjust the loads to reflect […]

RISAConnection recently added a new Knee Brace (Kicker Brace) connection type.  This connection can be designed at the brace to column or brace to beam. The connection design is very similar to that of a Chevron Brace: the resultant forces at the connection are calculated using simple statics.  The appropriate limit states are then checked […]

RISAConnection version 7 now allows both Transverse Column Flange Stiffeners and Column Web Doublers to be applied to Beam to Column Moment Connections. Simply select Yes for each option under Connection Category in the Connection Properties grid to apply the two options simultaneously: This will be reflected in the 2D and 3D views for verification.  […]

Due to the nature of seismic brace design per the AISC Seismic Design Manual, the design loads for a seismic vertical braced connection are not always based on the input loads or the imported load combinations from RISA-3D integrated model. Seismic vertical brace connections must consider several possible envelops of loading. This is necessary to […]
