Hi,

 

Is it possible to use a steel hollow section as the beam member when designing a column-beam connection in Robot Structural Analysis 2012 Pro?

According to online user guide (link below), hollow sections seem to only be available for column members of base connections.

http://docs.autodesk.com/RSA/2012/ENU/filesROBOT/GUID-435C42C0-C4E8-4970-B78E-A52E21B08C6-1058.htm

 

Any help is much appreicated,

 

Thanks

No, this is not possible. The easiest way of checking the available section types for particular connection is to check which of the parametric section icons are not grayed out as shown on the attached picture.

Hi Artur,

 

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. That's a pity. Was hoping for some work around.

 

Possible future feature!

 

Thanks again,

 

James.

Re: Structure Design - Steel Design - Compound Members

hello

 

I am interested in designing a steel connection with a double H profile. It's for a base column.

I don't have it available on robot, i can only design a I profile or a tube.

Neither the user defined compound won't work.

What should i do ?

 

Thank you

With such section not being supported you may try to use the user defined structural tube and stiffeners instead if this is acceptable for you.

For this connection type structural tubes are not supported.
