Creates a buckling plate aligned with one or two flanges of built-up members or with continuity plates. The buckling plate typically stiffens a transition plate and is limited (bounded) by two side plates.
If you specify one flange or continuity plate, then the buckling plate is positioned at the point at which the plate intersects the first side plate and orients normal to nodal connection plates. In the following example, the continuity plate is yellow, and the buckling plate is green.
If you specify two flanges or continuity plates, then the buckling plate is positioned between the intersection of the first flange and the first side plate, and the intersection of the second flange and the second side plate. In the following example, the continuity plates are yellow, and the buckling plate is green.
