How to Calculate Connection Design or Pass through Forces in S-FRAME Analysis

Knowing how to determine connection design forces across joints in your structural model enables the engineer to communicate the necessary information to the connection detailer.

This webinar describes the Pass-Through Force calculation tools in S-FRAME Analysis. These tools enable engineers to manually, or automatically, determine which members are contributing forces to a connection, and observe the connection design forces.

We will walk through an example showing how to obtain these connection design forces in an S-FRAME model, and also verify these forces by comparing the S-FRAME results to published hand calculations.
