JET-15007 Plates on Steel Beams

Currently it is not possible to specify a plate material on a beam by others during input. This can be challenging when the beam is flush in the floor system and mechanical connectors are required.

 Challenges:

  • Modeling a full depth Beam By Other (BBO) in Javelin assumes a solid section material (not I shape). When higher loads occur in the model longer nails (typical 10d common nails are 3” long) for connectors may be specified but may not be able to be used on site because the plate is only 1½”deep.

  •  It is difficult to model a single 1½” BBO and provide support for the flush beam in the floor system.
