Connection design is one of the last pieces of the structural engineer’s design process that is still mostly done by hand. The framing and connection design often influence each other. Designs can move beyond fix/pin end conditions and recognize actual joint stiffness.
Engineers can consider joint stiffness and they can design more than simple shear connections with Bentley’s RAM structural design software suite. The solutions automate the design of many complex connections.
