The Mitre Assembly Connection node (the MitreAsmConn sheet in the StructAssemblyConnections.xls workbook) defines the mitered assembly connections that you can place using the Place Assembly Connection command.

These assembly connections connect two members that meet at an angle. The members must be end connected, have the same cross-section, and have the same category (both are beams for example). A plate can optionally be placed between the members.

Name

Specifies the name of the assembly connection. This is the name that appears in the interface when you are placing the assembly connection.

Thickness

Specifies the plate thickness.

Length

Specifies the length of the plate (side parallel to the strong axis of the members).

Width

Specifies the width of the plate (side parallel to the weak axis of the members).

Clearance

Specifies the distance between the member ends.

With End Plates

Specifies whether or not a plate should be inserted between the member ends. Enter 0 to not place the plate. Enter 1 to place the plate.

Top Distance

Specifies the distance between the top of the section range box of the first member and the top of the plate.

Bottom Distance

Specifies the distance between the bottom of the section range box of the first member and the bottom of the plate.

Left Distance

Specifies the distance between the left of the section range box of the first member and the left edge of the plate.

Right Distance

Specifies the distance between the right of the section range box of the first member and the right edge of the plate.

Sizing Rule

Enter the sizing rule code for the assembly connection. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StructACSizingRule sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Symmetry

Enter the symmetry code for the mitre assembly connection. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StructAlignment sheet in the Codelist Number column. This controls how to cut back the member ends when the clearance value is not zero. Select the Center code to specify that both members should be cut back equally. Select the Right code to specify that the first member that you selected be cut back. Select the Left code to specify that the second member that you selected be cut back.

Category

Enter the plate category code for the plate. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StructCustomPlatePartType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Type

Enter the plate type code for the plate. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StructCustomPlatePartType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Material

Defines the plate material type. The value that you enter here should match a value in the MaterialType column on the Material sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook.

Grade

Defines the plate grade. The value that you enter here should match a value in the MaterialGrade column on the Material sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook.

Definition

Specifies the mitre assembly connection definition macro.
