In row 3 “”Slot “” is defined this is default...where ever ther is stiffener passing it will take
that

In row 4 collar type is specified for deck5000

Now i have created a new stiffener at y=0.4

For this stiffener “” s4”” alone i need to give a different type say “”slit”” type

Then

Tools>library>cutout

Row 4 is common for all deck5000 stiffener

Row 5 is only for the stiffener “”S4”” which is at 0.4m from c.l

Shell web frames


For transverse webframes

Ck “”s3”” line

IN girders web there are 2 types

Go >tools>library>stiff
Profile id “”tw” means height of flange in the T section excluding the web

“”t”” means total height of the web

Providing openings in stiffeners

Refer row 5

ID= H1 – H is for hole option

Set= XFH is syntax and S3 is indicating the web at row 3

Loctn= 2.8 4.6 ect are the Y locations for SB side give in negative value

And h=0.25 indicates the location of the hole from the deck

Profile= E*250*150 ....E is for cutouts we can customise in tools>library>stiffeners


Notches in girders/stiffeners : remember girder is also a stiffener

By giving endcut code 1500 in the stiffener row we can get corner notches for girders
To see the endcut code 1500 go to tools >library>endcuts

In general all the transverse webs stops at the longitudinal girder hence notch is to be
there.

To enable this go to tools>administration


Split physical stiffener change to “”ON””
