In aecosim,there is a option called "construct circular fillet with one radius given. I want to construct circular fillet with two
radius given. Similarly we have option called "construct chamfer" in which it has two distance have given in it . I want
the same option( distance 1, distance 2) in fillet as well. Is there a way to do so?
can you elaborate more and give an example of the use case for a fillet with 2 different radii. Would the resultant fillet be the shortest possible given the radii, or would an axis of the arc be perpendicular to a specific side or go through the existing vertex.
For example I want to draw the fillet with 2 different radii by assigning the values in (x,y) distance in which one radius will
be shortest radii & other one will be longest radii which we do similarly in "construct chamfer by assigning two values for
(distance 1, distance 2).Is there any solution to do in "construct fillet" as well ?
To be more specific, If u check in AISC Code (14th edition) there will be 2 different radius (k,k1).
In the above image with R1 as radius, they have two radius (k,k1) as per the AISC Code. The above image
R1 shows only one radius in it .So is it possible to do 2 fillet radius with R1 as shown in the above image?
Is there any chance you could post a screen capture here showing those specific details?
I have attached those details above showing (K,K1) two different radius with fillet. Kindly please check for
Thanks. I'll run this by some folks on my end and will let you know what I find...
As was explained to me by our Structural design experts, the way these beams are manufactured results in a radius that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, and even from the same manufacturer over a period of time. The rollers used during manufacturing have their own tolerances and variation based on their design/supplier, and over time they will wear which changes the resulting radius - at that point the manufacturer would replace the rollers so the radius will immediately change with the next batch. But as long as that radius falls somewhere between the lower value (the decimal typically used by the engineer) and the upper value (typically used by the detailer) then it is deemed acceptable.
With this variation in consideration I must ask another question: What need or value do you hope to gain by generating a precise compound radius between the flange and web of the I-beam? It seems like a high level of detail for something that in and of itself is typically not that precise.
