The Stair macros available with PowerPack for Advance Steel are powerful tools for anyone who wants to create stairs, but they are not magic.

To get the best from these macros it’s important to understand the philosophy of how it’s working. This philosophy is based on 4 aspects that you must have in mind before using the macro.

Let’s start with the first one.

A. The 2D setting out points defined

To ensure the macro works as expected, you need to have the 2D setting out points defined.

This is an important step to be done before starting the modeling.

The PowerPack Premium Stair tools use different setting out points. You need the bottom point of the first tread & top point of the last tread, exactly how is showed in the image below.

B. Don’t forget about the overlap

If your stair has a constant overlap, then move your last point horizontally to include the overlap.

In the example below the overlap is 50mm, therefore the blue point was moved with 50mm.

C. Know the length of the landing extension

For the staircases with 2 or 3 flights you need to know the length of the landing extension before using the macro.

In the example below, you can see 2 landing extensions for a stair with 2 flights: one of 230 mm in blue and the second of 460 mm in red.

D. Turning points for multiflight stairs

For the multiflight stairs created with the PowerPack macros, you need to define the turning points at the ground level, as you can see in examples below.

Going through these 4 steps before starting to use the Stair macro, will ensure that the macro is working as you expected and you will get the full benefits of its features.

In order to perform second order analysis on steel elements in Advance Design, Steelwork Design “To calculate” option must be activated from the element’s property list.

This feature is available either for each individual steel profile or for a multiple selection, by checking 2nd order with warping and imperfections checkbox, setting the Number of iterations and Stability 2nd order parameters.

The “Advanced stability (2nd order)” parameters can be found in the Steelwork Design section of the property sheet for steel members. 

(1)    Checking the “2nd order with warping and imperfections” box will perform the analysis of the selected members during the steel calculation sequence. 
(2)    The 2nd order analysis being an iterative process , the user can set the maximum number of iterations. 


The 2nd order analysis uses the user-defined imperfections in order to determine the final 2nd efforts. The imperfections are applied step by step, incrementally, until the final imperfection defined by the user is achieved. At every iteration, the 2nd order efforts are recalculated starting with the previously calculated efforts. Calculations are made until convergeance – defined as the difference between 2 succesive iterations (automatically managed internally by the solver) – is achieved,  or until the maximum number of iterations is achieved. 


(3)    The “Stability – 2nd order parameters” will give access to a dialog where the user can define the various parameters to be considered during the analysis of the selected members. 
The definition dialog will show 4 tabs: 
•    Nodal springs
•    Bedding
•    Imperfections EC3
•    Loads offset

Although the “Advanced stability” from Advance Design feature considers the individual member, the intersections with the other elements are of course taken into account. In fact, the intersections are turned into nodal springs

The selected member has intersections with other elements at x = 0.00m and x = 4.00m.

The “Auto-detect spans” button enables the users to see the intersections and alter the behavior of the corresponding springs.

The users can also add or delete nodal springs (only user-added nodal springs can be deleted) from the grid using the “Add” and “Delete” buttons. Moreover, they can reset the grid with the help of the “Reset” button.

Note: Even if the user does not open the Advance stability definition parameters, Advance Design will automatically take into consideration the intersections with the other elements during the analysis.

Note: If geometrical parameters are modified after the “Advance Stability” option is checked for steel members, “Reset” and “Auto-Detect Spans” options must be selected in order to reinitialize the position of the nodal springs. Any modifications made in the Advance stability window will be reset to default. Otherwise, the calculation will not be successful.

For each nodal spring, the user can set the status for each of the seven DOF.

    TxTy and Tz stand for the displacement along the x, y and z axes respectively 

    RxRy and Rz stand for the rotation about the x, y and z axes respectively

    Rw is the warping

Available statuses are:

  • Free: enables the release for the considered degree-of-freedom ;
  • Fixed: disables the release for the considered degree-of-freedom (this translates into a very high stiffness);
  • Auto: lets Advance Design automatically determine whether the degree-of-freedom is free or treated as an elastic release (the stiffness of which is automatically computed by Advance Design for each combination);
  • Elastic: defines an elastic release for the considered degree-of-freedom (stiffness imposed by user).

When set on “Auto“, Advance Design is able to compute the appropriate stiffness of the release as Force/Displacement, resulting in a stiffness value for each combination.

Warning: the “Auto” status means that the “Advanced stability” feature will attempt to re-create the boundary conditions based on the Forces and Displacements diagrams from the global model.

This can be challenging in some cases as the automatic determination has its own limitations.

For example, zero forces on a given node can either mean:

  • The degree-of-freedom (DOF) is free;
  • The DOF is fixed but no force was acting in the given direction.

Therefore, we would advise the users to manually set the free DOF”s on “Free” whenever possible as the “Advanced stability” feature is not able to import the boundary conditions defined on the member in the global model. The “Advanced stability” feature can only deduce the boundary conditions from the Forces and Displacements diagrams it imports from the global model.

We would also advise the users to make sure the member does not feature a free “Rx” DOF on both ends as this could lead to a numerical instability if no other intermediate nodal spring exists.

Setting the “Rx” DOF on “Fixed” can be a solution when the “Auto” detection method fail.

The “Position” property enables the user to define an eccentric spring.

Eccentricity is meant in the z direction (Upper fiber, Neutral, Bottom fiber or User value).

Stiffness auto correction 
There are cases when, by activating the “Auto-detect spans” option, the automatically calculated stiffness does not meet the minimum criteria in order to successfully perform the 2nd order analysis (for example, when displacements are automatically imposed at an element”s ends for which the automatically calculated stiffness is insufficient). By activating the “Stiffness auto correction” option, the program automatically imposes a minimum stiffness in order to successfully perform the analysis, but only when the values are very small.

Generally, the warping DOF (degree-of-freedom) is free and fixing it requires special rules for detailing, like the end plates, beam extensions, flat stiffeners.

The reinforced concrete linear elements are usually characterized by square, rectangular or circular cross-sections. Advance Design computes the reinforcement for such elements with the Reinforced Concrete (RC) Design expert. For irregular, user defined cross sections, the RC design falls outside the standard procedure. Therefore, the real reinforcement may be determined following an iterative process, as described in the next steps:

1. Add a new user defined cross-section – follow the steps from Figure 1

2. Define the cross-section geometry (shape and reinforcement position) and material in the Cross Sections module: draw the shape by point coordinates, define the reinforcement (automatic or manually) and concrete cover, define the material and calculation settings.

Note: It is recommended to define the initial reinforcement from the minimum reinforcement area.

3. Set parameters and calculate the cross-section properties

4. Export the cross-section to the Advance Design library

5. The user defined section is attributed to the desired linear elements (columns). Run FEM and RC Design analysis.

6. On the selected element, check the RC design – element reinforcement results. The real reinforcement (imposed) can be compared to the theoretical reinforcement (computed). The verification can be observed on the interaction curves also. The section solicitation point should fall inside and close to the capacity curve (My/Mz, Fx/My, Fx/Mz), for a safe and economic design. If the imposed reinforcement does not satisfy these conditions, the initial reinforcement is increased: restart from Step 2.

In this short article, we will look at one of the model validation methods available in Advance Design – displaying modelled elements in color according to selected criteria. Although this functionality is more general and can be used simply to improve the way a model is presented in a view or for documentation, today we will focus on its advantages for model verification.

Let us start with the topic of verification of local system of axes of surface elements. Checking and eventual change of local systems is an important step in the verification of the model, because by proper arrangement of local systems we have control over the uniformity of the FEM results and the reinforcement directions. Each modelled planar element has its own local system of axes, which is set automatically. Knowing the basic rules of automatic local axis system setting (as for example that the x-axis of the local system is usually defined along the first edge of the drawn contour) we can often control it ourselves. However, this is not always convenient or possible, especially when the model has been imported. Checking the local layout of axes for one or more elements is not a problem – we can simply select a surface element and we see its local axis symbol by default. The colors of the axes correspond to the colors of axes of the global coordinate system, i.e., the red axis is local x, the green one is local y and the blue one is local z.

However, it is much more interesting how we can quickly check the local axis settings for a larger number of elements / for the whole model.  To do this in Advance Design, we can use a very versatile tool to display objects in color according to selected criteria, available in the Display Settings window. In the ‘Color’ command group, there is a list for selecting coloring criteria, as well as additional options including displaying a legend and displaying the element’s local system axis during element selection.

For our purposes, of the many criteria available here, three will be useful to us: Local x orientation, Local y orientation and Local x orientation. All these modes are used to indicate in which direction the axes of the local system are oriented relative to the global system.

Take a look at the image below showing an example of the effect of using the ‘Local x orientation’ option.

The surface elements are colored and thanks to the legend we can immediately see how the local x-axis is oriented. For example, dark blue means that the local x-axis is pointing in the Y- direction of axis of the global system, light blue means that it is pointing in the Z- direction (down), while red means that it is pointing in the Z+ direction (up). We can easily confirm this just by selecting elements, as then we can see symbols of local systems.

If we now want to unify the orientation of the local axes, all we need to do is select the relevant elements, which is very easy thanks to the colors, and then choose one of the dedicated commands: Local Axis or Local Axis on direction.

On a similar basis, we can verify the orientation of the other axes of the local system of planar elements, but in the same way we can verify the local systems of linear elements. Of course, for this purpose, it is best if we filter out only the linear elements for presentation. But the same types of coloring styles as for surface elements can be used for this purpose.

The layout of local axes is not all that we can verify with coloring. The same tool can be used to verify the correctness of the modeling according to other criteria – for example thicknesses.

On the same principle, we will also check the cross-section of linear elements or the material that has been assigned to different elements of the model. But that’s not all. In a similar way, we can color elements according to their type, system assignment, or super element affiliation. And, other objects, such as loads by category or steel connections by type.  I recommend that all Advance Design users become familiar with all the available coloring criteria because using them increases the control over the model.

In order to simulate the membrane effect in a structure in Advance Design, “DOF (Degree of freedom) constraint” object can be used with the Tx and Ty translations restrained.  DOF constraint object is also named as Master-Slave connection. The command can be found in “Objects” ribbon tab:

The following properties regarding restraints definition are defined for the “DOF constraint” (Master-Slave connection):

For example, the response of the DOF constraint is compared with the response of a membrane in a simple 3D structure subjected to lateral loads. In this model, the elements’ self-weight is not considered.

Since the master-slave connection imposes to all component nodes the same DOF restraints (translations/rotations), the master node can be placed anywhere on the perimeter. In order to simulate the same response, the nodes must be placed on the same position as the mesh nodes of the membrane:

The similar response of the two objects (master slave connection with Tx and Ty translations restrained and membrane) can be verified by comparing the results of the FEM analysis:

The shape optimization calculation for steel elements can be performed in Advance Design  considering the condition of maximum deflection. Then, new cross-sections are searched if the deflection ratio is greater than the set limit (default 100%).


Thanks to this option from Advance Design, it is possible to optimize steel elements while using more criteria at the same time, like searching and selecting for profiles that must meet the conditions for maximum load capacity (strength/stability) and maximum deflection, independently or at the same time. This is especially useful for design of steel structural elements that exceed the maximum deflection while meeting the load capacity condition.

The optimization assumptions can be found in the Optimisation tab from Steel Design Calculation Assumptions dialog. Under the “Find new sections” paragraph, a new option is available to activate the deflection criterion and to set the maximum allowable deflection ratio considered for the cross section optimization. These assumptions apply to all steel members from the model which have Steelwork DeDefault optimization assumptionssign option from the element’s properties activated. The limits imposed in this tab apply to all cross sections as a group and cannot be applied differentially for singular element.

By default, the deflection ratio optimization is unchecked:

By checking the “if the max/all deflection ratio is greater than:” option, the user can impose the maximum ratio.

Once the steel calculation is completed, the strength/stability and deflection work ratios of steel elements are compared with the specific criterion, and other cross sections that meet the imposed conditions are suggested.
The results of steel elements optimization are displayed in the Suggested shapes dialog, displaying the current strength/stability and deflection ratios. If the ratios are greater than the imposed limits (100% by default), the current ratio is displayed in red. For such cases, if the deflection criterion is activated, the next cross section from the catalog that will meet the required criterion will be suggested, displaying also the ratio for that section.

By opening the Accepted solutions flyout, we can select the suggested shape or other section from the same catalog.

After accepting the suggested (or imposed) sections, from the Accept all option, a new steel calculation is required, in order to recalculate the new sections and have correct results in the shape-sheet of the elements and reports.
This optimization sequence is directly dependent with the sorting mode selected in the Sort profiles tab from steel Calculation assumptions. By default, the “Envelope criterion” option is selected, which means that the suggested profiles will meet both deflection criterion and strength/stability criterion.

If the Envelope criterion is selected, the new profiles are suggested from both cases, if the deflection or strength/stability criterion are exceeded:

If the Deflection criterion is selected, then the new profiles are suggested only if the deflection ratio is exceeded:

If the Strength/stability criterion is selected, then the new profiles are suggested only if the deflection ratio is exceeded:

In order for the deflection criterion based optimization to be computed, both Steelwork Design and Deflections options from element’s property list must be checked. The optimization based on deflection will be made according to the parameters introduced in the property list:


If the deflection verification is unchecked for an element, then “N/A” (Not available) message will be displayed for the Deflection work ratio in the Suggested shapes dialog.

This new feature makes result checking easier, thanks to the possibility of presenting a ratio for deflection during shape optimization. It also gives you the possibility to select optimal steel profiles considering the deflection. Various options from the Assumptions dialog help you get specific results for the steel elements used in design and enhance the workflow.

Recently this question came up from a colleague on how and where you find the Database entries behind the SDNF Export from Advance Steel.   So, this is what is behind todays idea for the blog.  

Within Advance Steel there are many different types of Export/import options, the core one of these is the SMLX options for transfer from Advance steel to Revit to Advance Steel, but sometimes over more traditional export formats are needed, in this case the SDNF format (Steel detailing neutral format) was being used to link to a Steel and piping software, the user was using Advance steel to complete their steel process but wishes to update within their piping platform. The simple answer is that the SDNF export uses the Databases called the GTC mapping, but which one, as there are two locations and then which tables, as there are several within the database. So, with this goal in mind, we looked into the actual database and more importantly which table and how the entries in the table are completed.   The conclusions of this and approach is explained in the attached document link, but the summary is that for the export process the GTC mapping database, that is located under the Advance folder of Autodesk within your program files, is where you need to look and it is using the table called the ‘Profile Export conversions’, under the Advance Steel type. Also, the entries for the table can be created using the ‘Autodesk one to one mapping’ or can use the ‘expression format’ that is common within the database entries.

Using Advance Steel 2021 version and the for the Export to SDNF option via the ribbon, we look at how to make a section group into the Export systems.

Which Database

For the SDNF mapping the database is the GTC mapping.MDB database, this is found under the Advance\data folder of Autodesk within your program files.

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Advance\Data

Note: to see this you may have to enable hidden files and folders under the windows explorer options.

The data base is an Microsoft access database, the best way to edit this is with ‘Access’.

Which Table/s

So the heading says which tables, for good reason, the system actually uses the Profile Export conversion table:

Although if you are creating entries via the mapping dialog that appears in the software, if it finds a beam type not mapped previously, in that case it creates two entries, with the other being in the GTC profile conversion.  If you do create entries manually, you can go in and remove these, as they are not used.

How to find an entry in the table.

For the Access field , you can filter this down by checking the box under the column filter to show only those elements:

In this case just uncheck select all, then scroll the list and check for example HEB

You will see several listings for HEB, some with different GTC standard and export applications listed.

But actuall none of these may be any good to export exactly what you need.  For example the line 1011 would look good for this export to SDNF,  but trying this it is not doing what you would expect.

The issue is coming from the  GTC standard, this does not have the correct reference that is aligned to the entry in the profile master table. That is the tynename text used in the profile master table, under the astorprofiles database.

The HEB reference is using the other table, and obsolete one.

The easiest way round this is to create a new table reference, to reflect the correct string and references,  so you can either manually do this, or maybe just take a few sections and map them, and look for the entries in the DB table,  they should start with prefix of 20000.

By mapping these manually, the GTC standard is created , so you can use this to form the string required.

If you have Excel this is an ideal platform in which to do this and create them and copy and paste back into Excel.

So, this is the simple way to create a line entry, then copy it out, then use the functions of Excel and expand the entries to cover all the sections from the profile table.  This can take some time to create, but more importantly they add lots of entries to the main DB.

But there is another way to reduce this input.

Single line entry using Expressions

Within the GTC database, the user will notice there are entries, which appear to use a code abbreviation, a formula so to speak.

 These expressions come from a format called regular expressions and there is some good information on this via this website link:  ‘learn RegEx Experssion this website very useful, very good step by step tutorial.  Take note there are many websites that explain this concept so feel free to google it and suggest others.’

This example the HEB beam mapping.

So from the previous entry in the profile export conversion table we can see the expression elements used in the line, so whilst in Access you can copy the line and paste it into Excel changing the key value to a more suitable entry, then comparing this to the manual lines, we can create a combined entry and paste it back into the Access table.

So with this line pasted back into the Access database, then close any open session of AS, close the access Database, Open the Profile export conversation table, then paste in the new entry, copied from excel.

Using this/ testing.

Create a simple model of the sections in question, then with new session of Advance steel open,  run the process for using these new entries. Select the SDNF button and process the HEB thorough the new table entries. If this is understood correctly and we run the export and the Advance steel mapping is present the process should complete within out the need for one-by-one map process.

Checking the SDNF file format and naming etc, your notepad of notepad ++, you can view the file and see the names created in the listing.

All this from one line in a table, this is the process used, beyond the manual mapping of sections, it is also used for the Revit transfer of objects via the SMLX format, again using these expressions to map multiple entries.  Please see the Autodesk University class that I had the privilege to present, over the Revit AS workflow, you see the same in this class for Revit and AS.

Explanation Coating for beams. Possible values are available from the ‘Coating’ table Coating for beams. Possible values are available from the ‘Material' table Minimum volume of the collision solid that is Recognized in a collision check [mm3]. If this value is small, all the collisions are shown in a collision check report. If the value is large, the volumes of collision under this value are not shown in the collision report. The scale factor applied to the bolt diameter when checking for tool clearance. Text shown in the compass in the model and in the drawings. Text shown in the compass in the model and in the drawings. Parts of a bolt assembly (for example,” Na2W” means nut and two washers). General name of a bolt anchor (for example, used on drawings and in list) Standard high strength bolt diameter of all manually created bolts. High strength bolt type or standard. Possible values are available from the “Norm” table. The hole tolerance for all bolts and anchors. Bolt representation during the first creation in the model. Treat special parts as normal objects for the bolt length calculation. Name of the AutoCAD® dimensions style used for that type of dimension in details. Ordinate dimensions show negative dimensions relative to the RD point. Diameter for standard holes. Do not display labels for holes with standard diameter (diameter specified by the “Default diameter for the standard holes” default). Reference length for the slope triangle. Color of specified line type in drawings. Select whether to use the new or old BOM templates on drawings. Ensure this matches your prototypes. If set to zero, you cannot produce more than one drawing per part or assembly. Choose whether standalone parts should be treated as parts, assemblies or both. If set to 1 any numbers that are unused (e.g. part deleted) will be reused. Set to 0 to prevent this. Activate more automatic layer management based on the Model Role of an object. Choose whether the alert box “Template values not found” should be shown when placing joints. Choose whether your drawings and BOMs are copied when you do a save as on a model file. Choose the method used for calculating the size of a developed plate. Choose whether to put a cloud around the part, the dimension or both.

Chapter 2 Advance Steel Interface

The user interface Advance Steel operates on the AutoCAD platform by combining the functionality of the two software’s. Below is a figure of the Advance Steel user interface which incorporates the Ribbon/tab, Quick access toolbar, Command line, Layout tabs, and Status bar which are common in most Autodesk software.

1. Quick Access Toolbar- Displays frequently uses tools. Select the down arrow and select Show menu bar to append the File, Window, and Help tabs.

8. Drawing file tab- Displays the open project in session.

2. Menu bar- You can access the help by selecting lp> “Help AutoCAD”. For software info, select”

9.

10. Drawing work area- Used to create your structures.

3. Project Explorer-Used for project creation and management after creating grids. Use to create model views, Levels Queries, Groups. Used to isolate selected objects of the structure based on various conditions.

11. Status Bar- Hover your cursor over each icon to find its description. When the icon is gray it means the toggle is off, and blue means the toggle it on.

4. Home Ribbon / tab- Displays frequently used tools which consists of flyout arrows and panels which can be expanded if a flyout exists. the F2 key to view a larger command line history window. 5. WCS or UCS icon 6. Model & layout tabs- You can access one or more layouts from the tabs located at the bottom-left corner of the drawing area to the right of the Model tab 7. Command line-as you enter the first few letters of a command in this field a list of suggested commands is displayed.

Panels-Expand the flyout to view more tools.

12. Advance Steel Tool Palette 13. Information center-Manage your account details and License and explore purchase options. 14. Help-select this button to access AS2021 help. 15. Application menu icon- When starting a new project, use a template file whether you are working in Imperial or Metric. The ASTemplate.dwt template drawing is automatically loaded. This file is configured with specific layers for Advance Steel elements. Additionally, the application menu contains links to your most recently accessed drawings.

Always use the applicable ASTemplate.dwt template to start the modeling project. Use the Imperial or Metric template.

The tool palettes The settings made by the user in the palette configuration – layout, commands, arrangement (for the Tool Palettes only) are stored in a set of files found in c:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Advance Steel 2021\[USA]\Steel\Support\Toolbars\

17

To migrate those settings to a newer version, or to easily deploy a set of configurations made to match the customer requirements, you need to copy those files (the ones with the _User suffix, which are the ones that Advance Steel actually uses, and use them on each computer that needs the respective settings. The files are: Drawing Style Palette: astdetailsdata_User.xml • Drawing Processes Palette: AstProcessesData_User.xml • BOM Template Palette: AstTemplatesData_user.xml • Tool Palette: AstPaletteData_User.xml • Connection Vault Palette: connectionvaultdata_User.xml To modify the tool palette layout, enter the edit mode holding the right mouse button while hovering over any button on the tool palette. When the edit mode is active, the icons will change and move. You can now drag and drop buttons to different locations.

You can now add commands by selecting the + sign in the top left window.

A dialog box will appear where you can name the command, insert a picture jpeg, png….to use as a logo and paste the command in the large window

To add a new button. Open the Connection vault and select a category where you use a command quite often. Copy the command from the command line. Paste the command into the large Command: field, enter the name in the Name field. For example, Shear plate. Take a print screen of the Shear plate and save it as a .png, navigated to where you saved it and select it. Select OK. The button will be appended to the items. For example: if you need a new button to apply the User Category Quick Connection, for which there is a button only to apply the Advance category settings, you need to create a new button and fill out the command as follows: _AstorAutoConnection 1 1 The difference from the existing Quick Command button is that now the Key is 1 1, instead of 0 1. The change from 0 to 1 means that the command will now apply the User category settings, instead of the Advance category ones which uses the 0 key.

Ideal browser settings to identify object & components In Advance steel you can optimize time and efficiency by setting the Model browser to display components and their credentials. The figure below shows the settings for Main part, Single part and Preliminary part:

RECOMMENDED PRACTICES Saving the project 1. Create a folder structure to store your projects in correctly. Create a projects or client folder and then create sub folders for each project. 2. In that folder store the model, which then creates its own relative folder and required sub folders when you hit save. This practice keeps all models and databases separate and avoids conflicts. 3. As an option you can create an AutoSave folder location and adjust your system to save your automatic backup files to that known location. Keep it simple and at the root of the system, for example C:/ ProgramData/ Autodesk/ Advance Steel/Auto save. 4. Save your model at regular intervals. 5. Use a suitable Name for the Model such as the contract number, project reference or place name. This can be useful later on in the project, as the model name can be listed in the drawing and NC naming and also be linked to the actual file references.

Modeling 1. Always start your model at 0, 0, 0 in the WCS, World Coordinates System. 2. Be aware of how you model a beam/section “right to left” or “left to right as this can influence how the front and the back of beam are displayed on an assembly drawing. 3. Columns- Always try to model so the Z Axis of the column flange is to the outside face of the building for perimeter columns. 4. System-line placement-When modeling horizontal members, roof members, floor beams, etc., always try to have the system line in the top of the profile at the middle of the flange. This affects the assembly drawing dimensioning. 5. For Columns, try to keep it in the center, unless you have a specific need for one column flange face to be at set location, as this means that if you change section, then the change in size goes away from that face, so the flanges still remain in line. This is sometimes used where cladding is applied directly to hot rolled steel flanges. 6. For Purlins and Rails, Try to keep the system line to the bottom face nearest the supporting beam, then if the size changes for the rail, the difference goes outwards, rather than altering the hot rolled frame set-out. 7. Always try to make sure your system lines meet for beams columns etc. This is like your wire-line in the model and with this it is easy to check the primary position of an object, also the system line is used as the datum for the dimensioning of the Drawings and in other aspects of the modelling. 8. Remember your UCS: this is a vital tool in placement and orientation of objects within the Advance Steel environment.

72

ADVANCE STEEL TRAINING GUIDE

9. For complex setting out of a building, say radial etc., always try to have some reference / construction line geometry in the system. Create a layer to put your construction lines on, you can turn them off or freeze them if you do not need them, turn them on or unfreeze them when needed. 10. Before you model a beam type, like poly-beam, or curved beam, consider how you are going to manufacture it and more importantly how you are going to detail it. 11. For simple curves used curved beams rather than poly beams. 12. For complex beams, that may appear too easy to create as poly beams, look at how the original shape line is created. Is it from a series of curves of known radii, if so, model it as a series of curved beams as you will buy it as curves and then weld or joint together. Poly-beams do not lend themselves to being dimensioned as radii, they work on points based upon the references they were created from. 13. KEEP IT SIMPLE –SIMPLE TO MODEL- SIMPLE TO MAKE 14. Note the difference between holes and contours, decide on how the hole will be produced, drilled or cut out via cutting torch or profiler? This affects drawings and NC processing. For drilled holes use the Hole commands. For profiled holes use the Contour commands. The size of the hole makes no difference to how the NC describes it. 15. Access your project before you start, look at how you are going to build the structure, how’s it is going to be delivered, where are you starting from, craneage etc., 16. Try to use macros wherever possible for joints. Always name it with a suitable reference name and save it to the library. For example, bracings, you can set one up for flats and one for Tubed, save each to the library and then when inputting bracing you can just select it from the library. 17. Use the Project Explorer to manage the model structure, set up views so it’s easier to work on plan or elevation at a time. 18. Always use model role, as this defines the prefix in numbering and also has influence with the drawing output. The drawing styles link to the model roles to set the style within the process.

Numbering •

Use the standard numbering rules set in Advance Steel and try to work with those, always let the program update the model numbering.



DO NOT MANUALLY NUMBER UNLESS YOU HAVE TO, this can lead to issues.



If the model is not complete, then try numbering using the Lot/Phase option with the box checked. This means that the existing part of the model will have unique numbers. These numbers will not be used elsewhere in the model in later phases. This means that you can carry on modelling and then just renumber at a later stage and the numbered items from phase 1 will not be altered.



Use the preliminary numbering of the model, adjust the BOM lists to include preliminary numbers. These references never change and can be a good way to track items whose final number has changed. For example, if pre-ordering curved beams this reference can be used to track that component.

73

Creating drawings GA drawings Think about what you want before you start. Map out how you are going to approach the drawings. For example: •

Floor plans first in level order, from ground up



Elevations going around the building



Sections through the building



local details of special joints/ typical joints



3D view views of the model



Lot phasing 3D views

Plan it on a piece of paper, make a list, assign the drawing numbers for GAs to follow this pattern, so you may have 5 drawing for plans, 4 for sections, etc. Think about the SCALE on the paper, can you combine two elevations onto one drawing etc.

Parts drawings •

Think about how they are going to be manufactured – in house, subcontracted off profilers etc., all ordered in at once or in phases. This may change the paper size you choose to produce the drawing on.



Filter the model to produce lists for required items. Use the lists that are set for Curved Beams, plates, beams. Use the list to check the model and that you have done all the drawings and things don’t get missed.

List

NC files •

If you want only plates of a certain size, then use the search filter tool to find and select them then create the NC files for them.



You can adjust the naming of the files and details shown on the hard stamp to include things like material, thickness, quantity, etc., using the

NC Settings.

When building onto an existing structure you must remember to set that structure so that it is not used for the Drawings or BOMs. These settings are on the Behavior panel in the object properties dialog box. What this does is set it so that when the model is numbered, these existing components are numbered but with a negative value and are not considered for drawings or material lists.

About Model Views Views are used to display a group of non-related elements within a given 3D volume rather than being based on a vertical position. Starting with AS2018, you can now attach a camera to a view and create a detail. A model view can be turned on or off by selecting the light bulb to the left of the text. Objects partially inside the defined area are cropped to show only the relevant portion. If you double click on a model view name, the view rotates to the chosen default view direction.

Creating manual bracing at Grid line 1 For this example, we will create a “At grid line” view and add bracing. First, put your UCS to world and the view orientation to SE. Disable all the levels and turn off or hide elements you do not want visible. Save as 01Creating manual bracing at Grid line 1. 1. Select the View icon

Accessing the connection properties 1.

Select any part within the gray intelligent connection box.

2.

Right click and select Advance Joint Properties from the contextual menu.

Double click on the gray intelligent connection box to bring up the joint properties of the connection.

Saving a standard connection to the library Another way of reusing a specific joint is saving its parameters in a library. When creating a joint with identical sections, the values are automatically loaded in the library. You can reuse the connection later in another project if the connections are of the same type. You will first save the C1 column corner base plate properties to the library, then create another base plate connection for the B1 column. 1.

Select an element of the C1 base plate connection and right click>. Select Advance Joint Properties.

2.

In the properties dialog box, Properties category, select the Library tab.

3.

Click Save values to store the base plate parameters in the library. A new line is created in the library.

4.

Click the Edit button to open the library and have access.

5.

Click the Comment field of the last line and Enter any pertinent text for this connection, C1 is used.

6.

You can click the Section field and select W16x26 to apply this connection values.

7.

Click OK to store the values in the library.

111

A common practice when creating good library entries that are automatically used, but covering multiple scenarios, is to use wild card values. Those are introduced in the Section name definition of the library and can partially or fully replace a section name. You can also use W%% to specify this connection for any W size, or W16%% for example for any W16 shapes. This is valid also for any type of section, for example an HSS, Channel, Angle…etc.

AISC14.1W\%- tells the library entry that this line will apply for all AISC14.1W sections, regardless of the section size.

AISC14.1W\W21%- adds additional filtering to the rule. It still applies to all AISC14.1W sections, but it also filters those that are W21. This means that this rule will apply the connection to W21x68, W21x62, W21x101, etc.

NOTE: For a model with many connections, a connection template can be saved in the library with the name “Default” in the “Comment” field. This connection now becomes the default and will be used when no other connection is listed.

Select the C2 column, type N and Enter. The base plate with anchor bolts is created at the end of the column.

The column is shortened by the Plate thickness and the plate is welded to it. Change the column shortening to value and Extension value to 1 3/4" Use the same process or use the “Create by Template multiple” tool to create a base plate for the C3, B3, A3 and A2 column. Create a base plate for B2 W14x26 column.

Finish all the base plate connections for Level 0 and save your work.

Changing the Column section size The connection object properties can be modified, at any time, using Advance Properties or Advance Joint Properties. When a column section is changed, all other elements related to the modification are automatically changed. 1.

Select the A2 column.

2.

Right-click and select Advance Properties from the contextual menu.

The properties dialog box appears. 3.

On the Section & Material tab, change the column section size to HSS 7x7x5/16.

The column section changes, and the base plate is automatically modified to the new configuration. 4.

Close the properties dialog box.

Look at the result, open the connection properties dialog box and notice that the projections are still the same. It can be seen also by verifying the distance. The same applies if the profile is moved or stretched; for example, the column is shortened, the connection readjust to the new column location. 113

Transfer properties Before transferring properties of the B3 base plate, modify its joint properties drastically then transfer the properties (parameters) to the A2 joint properties.

To have a leveling plate select the Stiffeners & Plates panel>sub panel> Leveling plate.

Chapter 12 Creating Queries and Groups Queries When working on a structure, it may be desirable to locate various objects based on certain properties. All the Advance steel properties of any given object type can be searched for. It is possible to search for all objects that do not match a certain criteria by selecting the Not column in front of them. You can save queries by selecting the save button. When you select Ok the object are marked in red and can be selected using the “Select marked objects tool.” Once selected, you can detail them, create NC files, DXF BOMs ect… You can create Extracts based on:

Groups A group may contain any random collection of objects that are otherwise unrelated. Groups allows you to select any collection of objects by any means and associate them together. You can add or remove elements from a group by right clicking on the group title name and selecting Add /remove elements. If you turn on the bulb by the group name, all objects that do not belong to the group will be hidden from display. Additionally, you can mark all elements of the group in red as well as select all members directly without marking. You can also create folders for the groups.

ADVANCE STEEL TRAINING GUIDE

Apply a model role to the elements using the Model browser Complete all connections in the structure. Use the tools on the Selection filters category to turn off the model view boxes and other elements you want hidden. Combine that with the AutoCAD Isolate >Hide objects command. For this exercise we will apply a Model role of Beams to the Object type beams in the structure. 1. Open the Model browser. 2. Select Edit Properties box in the upper left corner. To sort the columns, select the heading.

Select the beams that do not have a model role using the AutoCAD shift select. Once the elements are selected hold down the Ctrl with the Alt key. Select the inner right cell and the Beam model role from the drop down.

The model role will be appended to the elements in one shot. Select the refresh button to update the changes. The structure will have to be numbered to acknowledge the changes.

Select a row/s. The elements will be highlighted back in the model structure.

145

Clash checking The clash check verifies model interferences. Object interferences may be caused by various modifications made to plates, bolts, members and their connections. This tool finds all interference cases so that the model can be fixed before you create the drawings. The Advance Steel Clash check function checks selected elements or the entire structure. Any interference will be displayed as a red collision solid and listed in a window. The Clash check tool

is located on the Extended Modeling tab Checking panel.

In this example, the shear plate connection will be checked for interferences. Before starting, open the shear plate connection properties and change the number of vertical bolts from 3 to 4 and a 3 1/2’' distance between bolt centers to create a collision between the shear plate and the beam. 1. Make a right to left window selection encompassing the shear plate intelligent box then select the column, and the beam. 2. On the Extended Modeling tab, checking panel, click

the Clash check tool.

The results of the selected elements are listed in a window. For each collision found; Index number (Id)/First clashing part number: section size: model role/Second clashing part number: section size: model role/Coordinates of the center of the clash volume/Clash volume.

To find a collision, double click on the row, and an auto-zoom will show you where in the structure the collision solid is located. This symbol can be deleted.

to ignore the selected line, for the Clash checking process.

5.

Click , to reset the previous action and allow the objects to be included in the Clash checking process once again.

Steel construction technical checking Where clash checking looks for items that overlap other items you can use the technical check tool to look for other design factors such as bolts too close to the edge of the material. The technical check is also useful in locating a specific error in a massive structure. After selecting the “technical check tool” a list is populated in the drawing area showing the results of the check.

For each error the following information is provided. For example: The index number (id) of the error and the Parent part type (Base plate) and handle (8DA2). The description of the error and the HANDLE of connection element causing the error (8DBB). Take note of the handle of the connection object in order to find and fix the error. Double click on the row to zoom in on the connection with the error in the model structure.

147

You can also find the problematic connection by selecting the “Search Mark Object” icon located on the bottom of the window. To search by the handle number located in the description column, select the Search Marked Objects". icon. 1. Type “H” then enter. You will be prompted to specify the object HANDLE. 2. Type the handle 8DBBthen hit the enter key. 3. From the Advance Steel Tool Palette Selection category select, "Search Marked Objects". An arrow will point to the element with the issue .After identifying the object, you need to determine and take the appropriate corrective action. Although the list may seem extensive, often the action you take such as adjusting the bolt spacing in a joint will fix several. Rather than trying to fix many in one go just fix one or two at a time, run a clash check diminish the number of clashes.

Virtually all hydrogen available today is produced by steam-reforming methane. This is an energy-intensive, dirty process, with a large greenhouse gas footprint. Yes, it is less polluting if carbon capture and storage is added, but this increases the cost, and suitable storage spaces are not easily found. Green hydrogen, which is produced, with electricity from renewable sources, through electrolytic separation of hydrogen from water is expensive and requires large amounts of clean water.

Hydrogen is used in many essential processes, such as ammonia and steel production, petroleum refining, and glass purification. As more green hydrogen becomes available, it should be used to replace the dirty (“gray” and “blue”) hydrogen that is essential for these and similar processes.

The only peer-reviewed paper published to date comparing the greenhouse gas footprints of available forms of hydrogen concludes that the environmental impacts of gray and blue hydrogen are worse than burning natural gas, diesel oil, or coal. There are no good reasons for putting hydrogen into the pipes under our streets and in our homes.

There is a new application for green hydrogen that may make sense: a long-term storage medium for excess electricity from renewable resources (solar and wind). This is a subject that is worthy of research. The need to accommodate seasonal variations in renewable electricity will become increasingly important as their shares of the power we rely on increase.

Gordon Richardson

Distressing to see industry’s spin being promoted

It is distressing that Massachusetts’ public university is propagating the gas industry’s spin that (highly flammable) hydrogen should play a significant role in heating buildings and in gas-burning appliances. There are potentially valuable roles for so-called green hydrogen in selected transportation applications, such as long-haul heavy trucks, and most importantly for long-term storage of renewable energy paired with fuel cells. But hydrogen cannot be substituted into parts of the methane pipeline network at significant concentrations because it embrittles the pipes’ materials.

Hydrogen is less energy dense than methane, so as the hydrogen ratio increases, the energy delivered through the pipeline decreases. Medium- and high-pressure pipes cannot be reused but would need to be replaced. Every compressor in the network also would have to be replaced, partly because the energy to compress hydrogen is substantially greater than for methane.

Moreover, it is unclear how much hydrogen in a blended mix would be tolerated by existing gas-burning appliances. In this scenario, indoor air pollution would persist. Gas utilities would be better advised to plan a role for some existing gas distribution pipelines to carry water in future district geothermal heating and cooling systems serving multiple individual buildings. This approach can help them migrate their existing assets and skills into new services and technologies as we transition away from fossil fuels.

Notably missing in report is analysis of efficiency

I attended the conference last week at which a draft of a report, funded by Associated Industries of Massachusetts, was released on hydrogen as an energy source. As stated in the UMass Lowell report, “The Viability of Implementing Hydrogen in Massachusetts,” blending 20 percent hydrogen with methane for home heating reduces carbon emissions by only 6 percent, so it does not get us to net zero any time soon. Getting to zero emissions would require pure hydrogen in our pipelines, a safety hazard that would require massive infrastructure updates and great cost. No hydrogen-burning appliances are currently available.

What was notably missing in the report was any analysis of efficiency. A heat pump, which uses energy directly from the grid, is at least five times more efficient than hydrogen produced, piped, and combusted for home heating. Let’s use hydrogen where it makes most sense: industrial use that is hard to decarbonize, maritime shipping, aviation, and long-term energy storage.
