Good evening dear community,
I need your guidance regarding the launch and use of Ram connection interface.
Model designed in physical modeler and then analysed in analytical. As you can see on the below picture i selected the ''select all Beam-Column flange joints'' from ''select joints tab'' at the upper left side. Then i selected the smart connection and put the applicable design code where only one connection was available.. see the following pic.
I selected it and then the following message appeared.
What am i supposed to do in order to assign the connections?
Thank you very much in advance for your sypport.
Can you please share the corresponding files like .stdp, .std with me? It seems the sections you have used are not compatible with the templates you are trying to use.
Thanks & regards,
Global Technical Support
Please fins attached the relative files.
Thank you very much in advance.
Only I shape sections for the beams are supported for the Directly Welded BCF connections. You may use some other types of BCF connections for this joint (i.e. welded shear end plate). however, the channel beam cannot be sloped - it must connect to the column and 90 degrees angle.
Thx Modestas for your support.
I changed the upn 100 to IPE 100 and worked.
Unfortunately on the next connection, says that no connection has been assigned. Please see the following pics.
When i tried again to do the procedure, program was crashing and indicates the following message:
Whats wrong this time?
Below you can find attached the std and stdp file as well.

Thank you very much.
Also in continuation to the above the following message is indicated.
Thanks and Regards,
BCF (Beam-Column Flange) connection will not work for these joints, as these a Beam to Column Web (BCW) joints.With regards to the crash - make sure that you are using the most recent STAAD.Pro CE version 22.10.00.153.
