Displays the options that you use to place a profile edge reinforcement in the model.

 Edge Reinforcement System Properties

Opens the Edge Reinforcement Properties dialog box, which you use to view and modify the properties of the edge reinforcement system that you are about to place in the model. For more information, see Edge Reinforcement Properties Dialog Box.

 Pick Edge

Specifies the plate edge to reinforce.

 Define Orientation

Specifies the orientation of the edge reinforcement. See the Define Orientation Controls section below.

 Boundary 1

Defines the first boundary for the edge reinforcement.

 Boundary 2

Defines the second boundary for the edge reinforcement.

Edge Boundary

Allows you to select the edge of a plate as the boundary. This option is available when you select Boundary 1 or Boundary 2 .

Finish

Places the edge reinforcement using the defined parameters.

Define Orientation Controls

Available when you use the Define Orientation Definition option.

Rule

Specifies the orientation rule. This option is only available after you click Define Orientation . You can select from the following rules:

Normal - The web of the edge reinforcement system part follows the plate system surface normal along the landing curve. This is the default setting.

Vertical - The orientation vector of the edge reinforcement cross-section remains in a vertical direction. For example, you can select Vertical for edge reinforcements on a deck.

Longitudinal - The orientation vector of the edge reinforcement cross-section remains in a longitudinal direction. For example, you can select Longitudinal for edge reinforcements on a transverse frame.

Transverse - The orientation vector of the edge reinforcement cross- section remains in a transverse direction. For example, you can select Transverse for longitudinal stringer edge reinforcements.

Planar - The orientation angle remains constant relative to the Normal reference plane. This rule is valid only for planar edges.

Angle Reference

Specifies the angle reference plane from which to measure the mounting angle. This option is available only when you select Planar from the Rule list. You can select from the following reference planes.

Normal - Specifies that the reference plane from which the mounting angle is measured is in the Normal direction.

Up-Down - Specifies that the reference plane from which the mounting angle is measured is in the Up-Down direction.

Fore-Aft - Specifies that the reference plane from which the mounting angle is measured is in the Fore-Aft direction.

Port-Starboard - Specifies that the reference plane from which the mounting angle is measured is in the Port-Starboard direction.

Angle

Specifies the angle for the plane. This is set as the mounting angle for the edge reinforcement. The allowable range for the angle is -90 to +90 degrees. The Angle option is only available when you select Planar in the Rule list.

 Reject

Clears all selected edges or boundaries.

 Accept

Accepts all selected edges or boundaries.

Section Type

Specifies the profile cross-section type.

Section Size

Specifies the profile cross-section size.

Name

Specifies the name of the object that you are placing. Type a name, or leave the box blank to use the default naming rule.

Naming Category

Specifies the naming category. The naming rule uses the category in naming the profile part that is a child to the profile system.

Section Type

Specifies the profile cross-section type.

Section Size

Specifies the profile section size.

Primary Orientation

Defines the side of the plate system used to place the stiffener profile. The default setting is determined by the molded conventions of the parent system. This property can be modified only at the root system.

Secondary Orientation

Defines the direction of the web thickness for symmetrical cross-sections and the direction of the flange and web thickness for unsymmetrical cross- sections. The default setting is determined by the molded conventions of the parent system. This property can be modified only at the root system.

Material

Specifies the object material type, such as Steel - Carbon or Steel - High Strength.

Grade

Specifies the object material grade, such as A36 or A529.

Start Connection

Defines the method of connecting the beginning of the profile to its plate, profile, or member boundary. By Rule is the default setting. The connection is determined by assembly connection rules defined for Structural Detailing. Other connection methods can be added as part of your reference data customization.

End Connection

Defines the method of connecting the end of the profile to its plate, profile, or member boundary. By Rule is the default setting. The connection is determined by assembly connection rules defined for Structural Detailing. Other connection methods can be added as part of your reference data customization.
