Applying Transverse Stiffeners and Web Doublers Together

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.  You may configure the Stiffeners and Doublers using the inputs from the Connection Properties grid.

The design checks will check each element individually; the program assumes no interaction of the Transverse Stiffeners and Web Doublers.
