Why to use built up steel cross-section

 

IDEA StatiCa Connection can add fixed support only to one member. If you have connection like the one in the figure, you need to use a composed cross-section (for the column).

 

You could use several predefined types in Cross-section navigator

 

or define your own type in General cross-section editor.

 

 

You can design joints defined by general cross-section with several parts to satisfy your needs.
