Specifies the tripping stiffener connection data as it relates to the two reference objects that define the stiffener location. This tab is available only when you are modifying a tripping stiffener.

Connect Type

Specifies how the tripping stiffener relates to the selected reference object. You can select from:

  • Connected - The tripping stiffener connects with a butt or tee type connection and is trimmed by the reference object.

  • Lapped - The tripping stiffener overlaps the reference object.

  • Fixed X, Fixed Y, or Fixed Z - The tripping stiffener end location is defined by a distance from a main axis.

  • Parallel - The tripping stiffener landing curve direction is constrained to be parallel to the web of the beginning reference object.

  • Perpendicular - The tripping stiffener landing curve direction is constrained to be perpendicular to the ending reference object.

  • Transverse, Vertical, or Longitudinal - The tripping stiffener landing curve is constrained to be parallel to one of the main axis.

Load Point

Specifies the load point of the beginning and ending reference object to which the tripping stiffener landing curve is to connect. You must select the Override option to change this value.

U Offset

Specifies an offset of the tripping stiffener landing curve relative to the load point on the cross-section of the reference profile. The offset value is based on the approach angle between the end objects.

V Offset

Specifies an offset of the tripping stiffener landing curve relative to the load point on the cross-section of the reference profile. The offset value is based on the approach angle between the end objects.

Override

Select to override the values of Load Point, U Offset, and V Offset.
