Channel Sections in Bam-Beam shear connection

Would it suffice if i entered the ISMC (Channel Section) data for the secondary beam input for a Beam-Beam connection in a Cleat Angle Connection type?

Currently only I sections are the input available as i see it

P.S. Great software, thanks!

Many Thanks,

Dear Osdag user,

The design of shear connection with a cleat angle is available only with I sections (beams) due to it's more common use. Design with channel sections (as beams) is not available in the current (and previous) version(s), even if you overwrite the database and try designing, as the backend code will not support the channel section as a beam.

Tip: You may convert the channel section under consideration into an equivalent I section and provide as input to Osdag, for a trial design.


Thank you,

Team Osdag.
