Starting with Advance Design 2009, haunches can be created on steel beams. The haunches modeling options are available in the linear element properties window.

How can I create haunches for steel beams

The haunch can be created at any end of the linear element and also at both extremities of the linear element (Start and End) – in which case the haunches can be identical or may be configured differently.

Haunch parameters

How can I create haunches for steel beams

  • Position: Taking the element axis into account, the haunch position can be set as: Bottom, Top or Top and Bottom.
  • How can I create haunches for steel beams

  • Length. Can be defined as:

    Ratio (the ratio of the beam length)

    Value (local axis) (by numerical value relative to the local axis of element)

    – By Projected value.

  • Cross section type:

    Identical (the same cross section as the beam),

    Previous shape or Next shape (taking the previous or the next type from the beam’s cross section family),

    Imposed.

  • Height. Can be defined:

    – By Ratio (the ratio of beam height)
    – By Value
