In current construction design, joints are often used between concrete and steel elements. Starting with 2012 version, Advance Steel provides new predefined joints between these types of elements, covering and completing the whole “Connection Vault”.
The "Embed Beam Seat" joint can be used between any types of concrete elements (wall, slab, column, foundation and beam) and some of the steel sections (I, T, C, L, Hollow rectangular/square, welded, compound or tapered sections).
This joint can be used successfully to anchor steel stairs in concrete slabs, to anchor cantilevers, to stiffen walls with steel beams or to support steel beams on concrete columns.
The “Embed Plate-ClipAngle” joint can be used only between specific types of concrete elements (wall, slab, beam) and some of the steel sections (I, T, C, L, welded, compound or tapered sections).
This joint can be used with success for all type of steel stairs which are anchored in concrete, intermediate landings and different industrial constructions.
To create either of the two joints between a steel element and a concrete element, open the "Connection Vault". From the "Miscellaneous joints" category select the "Embed Beam Seat"/ "Embed Plate-ClipAngle" joint.
First select the steel section and after that you are asked if you want to select an additional element (beam/wall/slab/column/foundation). Answer the question with "Y" (Yes) so that you can select the concrete element. After the selection is done, the joint is created and the properties window appears. In this window you can configure the joint as you need.
