How to Model Splice Connections in RISAConnection

With the new RISAConnection v2, users now have the ability to design the following splice connections:

Beam Shear Tab Shear Splice

  • Designs beam to beam connections for axial and shear loads.
  • Shear tab may be welded or bolted on either side.

Column Shear Tab Shear Splice

  • Designs column to column connections for axial and shear loads.
  • Shear tab may be welded or bolted on either side.

Beam End Plate Moment Splice

  • Designs beam to beam connections for axial, shear, and moment loads.

Column End Plate Moment Splice

  • Designs column to column connections for axial, shear, and moment loads.

Beam Flange Plate Moment Splice

  • Designs beam to beam connections for axial, shear, and moment loads.
  • Shear tab may be welded or bolted on either side.
  • Flange plates may be welded or bolted.

Column Flange Plate Moment Splice

  • Designs column to column connections for axial, shear, and moment loads.
  • Shear tab may be welded or bolted on either side.
  • Flange plates may be welded or bolted.

These can be selected from the Create New Connection dialog just like any other connection type.

Simply select the type you would like and then edit the Connection Properties in the input dialog on the right side of the 3D view. Similarly splices connections may be designated in your RISA-3D model and then imported into RISAConnection for design.
