TecnoMETAL Connections

TecnoMETAL Connections is an application independent from CAD software for fast and immediate

calculation of individual steel connection. Allows the user to calculate and verify the various elements of

the structures referring to the code EC3, AISC-ASD, AISC-LRFD and ABNT NBR.

The verification environment TecnoMETAL Connections allows a versatile and interactive design of

steel connections from the database of TecnoMETAL or create new ones and then updating the same

database. The connections data dialog is shared with other modules and allows you to enter in detail the

characteristics of geometry and materials. To facilitate the design of the connection you have database of

profiles, connections (connections, joint covers and base plates) and materials (steel, welds and bolts).

The program uses and manages databases of building elements, including profiles, materials, bolts, nuts,

connections etc... The databases are available for various nationalities, as the product has a worldwide

distribution. The databases can be placed on the server to become shared datas for all the designers

in the company.

Required actions are handled within the same interface to create the connection and can be inserted

manually or automatically by importing CSV text file containing combinations of load properly organized

in table.

Any modification of the connection is updated along with the design verification. Drawing consists of 2D

projections of the executive and also contains information on bolting and welding. All graphical displays

can be exported in vector format such as DWG or DXF and raster formats such as BMP, GIF, PNG.

The immediate results of the calculation/verification are displayed both on screen and through the

calculation report printable and customizable. You can always get a quick optimization of the union

(change node type, material plates, class bolts and welds etc ...).

The calculation report is in HTML format, so it is a flexible format easily customizable.

Calculation setup

This dialog can be opened from both the "General configuration for calculation" either from the "Work

configuration for calculation." In the first case, you create a default configuration that is loaded to the new

works in the second you define the data of the active work.

8. Status bar

Connections list

On the left side of the dialog shows the list of unions that have been designed and/or verified.

Using the right mouse button, you can:

create a new connection;

change an already inserted union;

delete a union.

During the creation of the union you also must insert the values of the stresses in the form of load

combinations.

From the list of connections by double-clicking with the left mouse button on the name you can access

the following screen for the modification.

The command shows the initial screen where you can select the shape of the profile A (1) or, alternatively,

if you have to run a base plate (2) or a joint between two profiles (3).

Selecting one of the profiles (1), is displayed to the right choice for the profile B, and further to the right

as the two profiles are combined.

The color of the selected icon means:

"Red" that the verification is available, "Green" that the design is available, "Grey" that will be added in

future versions.

With a double click on the type of union you confirm the selection.

The dialog for the verification of the connection is the same used in TecnoMETAL 4D to draw the

connections.

In this dialog you need to set up profiles Sha.A and Sha.B choosing them from the database, so even

for materials and bolts.

The geometry of the connection can be retrieved from the Database with the button to the right of

the box "Type".

The "Save" button is used to add data to the database from the displayed connection, the button "Delete"

is used to erase the displayed connection.

With the "List..." button, you can view a list of connections in the database.

In the images of reference for the data entry, the values written in "Red" means that the value can be

multiple (ex: 3*200,100,200).

The node is fully drawn in the other dialogs and here you go about populating the list of stresses with the

command "Add Line" or remove from the list with "Delete Line".

At the center of the dialog "Combinations" is located the schematic image showing the orientation of the

union and the direction of the applied forces. The forces drawn here indicate the positive direction. At any

time you can add and remove stress. The stresses N, Tx, Ty, Mx, My are the forces used for verification,

Mxf is the moment in the main direction of the opposite beam to Shape A.

With "Opposite shape" you go to select the beam opposite to the beam solicited, requested information

from the EC3.

The verification is done with the "Verification" button. The union verification automatically opens an HTML

document with a check status and error.

The "Description" field, shown below, can be used to identify the union and will be used as the title in

the calculation report.

The stresses can be imported from a text file of type "*.csv" using "Import file" button. The text file must

contain the stresses organized in a table, each row represents a combination of load and the number of

columns must be equal to 6. The column header is established in the "Index columns".

For example, with the following text file:

Comb;Mx;My;Tx;Ty;N

first;1000;2000;100;200;10

second;1100;2100;110;210;11

Traction Bolt - Plate

Welds

The stresses that can be transmitted from beam A through a flanged connection are:

Axial Load (N)

Shear according to x-x and y-y axes (Tx, Ty)

Bending moment around the axis of maximum inertia x-x (Mx)

In the verification of the welds is also considered the bending moment about the y-y axis (My).

In the verifications of bolts, the stresses are divided as follows:

Mx and N are transmitted through tensile bolts

Tx and Ty are transmitted from all bolts

The Beam B shear verification is carried out at first without considering the stiffeners and then considering

whether there are diagonal stiffeners or web plates.

The shear area is then modified considering the stiffeners.

The verification is made by comparing the required and the available strength:

if the verification is satisfied

To calculate see Eurocode 3 6.2.6.2.

While for see the previous verification "Shear Web Beam B Verification".

Bending Flange Beam B Verification

Within this verification are made valuations on the number of rows of tensile bolts.

To locate the rows of tensile bolts you must find firstly the traction and compression points; the traction

point is in the last row of bolts that is within the shape or the knee joint; the compression point is the

outermost point of the shape or of the knee joint. All the rows of bolts between the intermediate point

(between traction and compression) and the traction point, shall be considered to be tensile.

In the example below there are three rows of tensile bolts.

Once you locate the rows of tensile bolts, Eurocode asks you to evaluate the type of rupture of the flange

using the minimum length of fracture (plasticization) among those possible.

The information of the strength of flange and the information about the bolts allow you to locate the rupture

mode, which can be:

Mode 1: thick flange

Mode 2: bolts and flange

Mode 3: bolts

The verification is made by comparing the required and the available strength:

Bending Flange Beam B Verification

This verification can be done only with bolted union and bolts must to be inside of the flange of beam B.

The verification procedure follows the design guide "AISC Design Guide 16-Flush And Extend Multiple-

Row End-Plate Moment Connections, 2002" which describes a method based on the following principles:

the yield line determines the resistant plastic moment of the plate, once you know the geometry of

the plate, the geometry of the shape and the yield strength of the material;

the tensile strength of the bolt considers the prying force, once you know the geometry of the plate,

the geometry and the material of bolts;

the appropriate type of connections based on considerations of stiffness or moment-rotation.

Within this verification are made valuations on the number of rows of tensile bolts.

To locate the rows of tensile bolts you must find firstly the traction and compression points; the traction

point is in the last row of bolts that is within the shape or the knee joint; the compression point is the

outermost point of the shape or of the knee joint. All the rows of bolts between the intermediate point

(between traction and compression) and the traction point, shall be considered to be tensile.

In the following example there are two rows of tensile bolts.

Once you locate the rows of tensile bolts, AISC code asks you to evaluate the type of rupture of the flange

using the minimum length of fracture (plasticization) among those possible.

The information of the strength of flange and the information about the bolts allow you to locate the rupture

mode, which can be:

thick flange rupture

bolts rupture without prying force

thin flange rupture

flange rupture

bolts rupture with prying force

The verification is made by comparing the required and the available strength:

The variable is the bending resistant stress of the end flange and for its calculation see "AISC Design

Guide 16". The value of considers the flange strength and/or of bolts depending on the type of rupture.

respective available strength and . The voice represents numerically the left part of the above

inequality.

The shear stress is distributed equally between all bolts present, while the axial and bending stresses are

distributed through an elastic distribution. This distribution considers the contact surface between flange

and beam B, that works only in compression, and bolts.

The strengths are calculated considering the actual section of the bolt thread.

Bending Flange Beam B Verification

The verification procedure follows the design guide AISC Design Guide 16 - Flush And Extend Multiple-

Row Moment End-Plate Connections, 2002 that describes a method based on the following principles:

the yield line determines the resistant plastic moment of the plate, once you know the geometry of

the plate, the geometry of the shape and the yield strength of the material;

the tensile strength of the bolt considers the prying force, once you know the geometry of the plate,

the geometry and the material of bolts;

the appropriate type of connections based on considerations of stiffness or moment-rotation.

Within this verification are made valuations on the number of rows of tensile bolts.

To locate the rows of tensile bolts you must find firstly the traction and compression points; the traction

point is in the last row of bolts that is within the shape or the knee joint; the compression point is the

outermost point of the shape or of the knee joint. All the rows of bolts between the intermediate point

(between traction and compression) and the traction point, shall be considered to be tensile.

In the drawing above, there are three rows of tensile bolts.

Once you locate the rows of tensile bolts, this code asks you to evaluate the type of rupture of the flange

using the minimum length of fracture (plasticization) among those possible.

The information of the strength of flange and the information about the bolts allow you to locate the rupture

mode, which can be:

thick flange rupture

bolts rupture without prying force

thin flange rupture

flange rupture

bolts rupture with prying force

The verification is made by comparing the required and the available strength:

This verification can be done only with bolted union and bolts must to be inside of the flange of beam B.

The verification procedure follows the design guide "AISC Design Guide 16-Flush And Extend Multiple-

Row End-Plate Moment Connections, 2002" which describes a method based on the following principles:

the yield line determines the resistant plastic moment of the plate, once you know the geometry of

the plate, the geometry of the shape and the yield strength of the material;

the tensile strength of the bolt considers the prying force, once you know the geometry of the plate,

the geometry and the material of bolts;

the appropriate type of connections based on considerations of stiffness or moment-rotation.

Within this verification are made valuations on the number of rows of tensile bolts.

To locate the rows of tensile bolts you must find firstly the traction and compression points; the traction

point is in the last row of bolts that is within the shape or the knee joint; the compression point is the

outermost point of the shape or of the knee joint. All the rows of bolts between the intermediate point

(between traction and compression) and the traction point, shall be considered to be tensile.

In the following example there are two rows of tensile bolts.

Once you locate the rows of tensile bolts, AISC code asks you to evaluate the type of rupture of the flange

using the minimum length of fracture (plasticization) among those possible.

The information of the strength of flange and the information about the bolts allow you to locate the rupture

mode, which can be:

thick flange rupture

bolts rupture without prying force

thin flange rupture

flange rupture

bolts rupture with prying force

The verification is made by comparing the required and the available strength:
