Specifies the shape and material properties for the bracing and cross beam members of the trestle.

This tab is not available when you select Short/Long Posts as the trestle type.

Bracing

Bracing Type

Specifies the bracing configuration. Select one of the following options:

  • Cross

  • Chevron

Member Type

Specifies the type of member. The default value is Brace.

Standard

Displays the structural specification defined in the catalog.

Section

Specifies the structural cross-section shape. Select a recently used type, or click More to display the Catalog Browser dialog box. In the Shapes folder, select a folder, and then select a module from the right pane of the dialog box.

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.

Cardinal Point

Displays the relative position of the structural cross-section to the member placement line. Nine cardinal positions (1 -9) are available. The location of cardinal points 10 (center-of-gravity) and 15 (shear center) depend on the section shape. The local z-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 11 and 14. The local y-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 12 and 13. Cardinal points 10 through 15 are unavailable for designed members or cans.

Angle

Specifies the rotation of the cross-section about its local axis.

Cross Beams

Member Type

Specifies the type of member. The default value is Brace.
