New Steel Section - Need Help

  • Hi all,

    I have a Client who want a new rail beam that has different beam widths top vs bottom. If this possible in Bentley Structural in the stf file or will it have to be a modelled section?

    Thanks,

  • bump

  • If I have to bump too much more I might as well take up Pro Football.

  • I understand the Vikings are looking for some players...

     There currently is no "rail" section in the steel tables. I've had users use the "Precast I Beam" and added different dimensions in the table to reflect a rail-type shape.

    I understand a rail shape is in the works for a futur release.

     

  • Thanks Paul, I hoping for some solution that would allow me to have the sections in the MTO. Looking forward to future releases then....
