How to Model Column Outriggers in RISAFloor


RISAFloor now has the capability to model column outriggers. This feature can be found on the Cantilevers tab within the Draw Beams dialog.

Modeling Outriggers 1

All you need to do is define the outrigger member properties (Material and Shape Options), the Length and Angle, and the Function. Click Apply and then click on your column to apply the outrigger.

These members will show up in the Beams spreadsheet with the newly added Outrigger checkbox selected. This is not a field that can be edited; therefore all outriggers must be created graphically. Similarly, the end nodes cannot be edited.
