Structural Elements

Modifies properties of edges of structural areas.

This can be used to control the connection between areas, e.g. when two adjacent areas require a hinge between them because there is no moment connection.

To support a boundary, an additional structural line has to be created at that place.


This command affects to each chosen area. This may result in a chain of hinges e.g. with hinges at two areas side by side. Therefore it may be useful to display a selection of areas whose edges are to be modified before using this command.

A detailed description of the possibilities can be found in the chapter ‘SARB – Structural area boundaries and constraints’ of the manual SOFiMSHC.
