5.5 Splicing Sections

Splicing allows the user to divide sections into smaller lengths at any point along their length and, optionally,
connect the abutting ends created by the splice.



Selecting Modify>Sections>Splice… displays the Splice
Section on Plane form which enables the user set a plane to
create the splice.

The splice may be applied to the CE, the current list or
elements picked from the graphical view by selecting CE, list
or Pick from the options list on the top left of the form. If the
List or Pick option is selected, all of the elements selected will
be spliced at their intersection with the plane.

The size of the plane may be specified by entering a value in
the Plane size textbox.

The plane may be positioned using the Cursor or Intersection
options from the form menu or by entering co-ordinates in the
appropriate textboxes.

If the Confirm before splicing check box is selected the user
will be prompted to confirm the splice. This can be useful if the
splice utility is applied to a list or pick selection.

Where the abutting sections are required to be
connected, ensure that the PNOD creation check
box on the Beams & Columns toolbar is checked.

A PNOD will be created at the splice position with a
Primary Compound Joint (PCOJ) and two Sub
Joints (SUBJ), one having a connection reference
to the existing SCTN and the other having a
connection reference to the newly created SCTN.

To illustrate, consider the example below where a
splice will be applied to a column that has two
connected beams. A plane is initially defined using
the Cursor>Element option from the Splice
Section on Plane form. The plane is then adjusted
to a set distance above the TOS of the beams.
PNOD creation is turned on. The column is spliced
at the plane and a PNOD is created.

5.6 Merging Sections

Structural elements of the same type, i.e. SCTN, PANE or GENSEC, may be merged together to form a
single element. Elements may be merged regardless of their specification, beta angle, or position provided
they are co-linear.

Any number of sections may be merged but the first element selected will be the dominant section, i.e. the
section that all other selected sections will be merged into and whose attributes the merged sections will
inherit. The user must identify the sections to be merged by selecting elements in the graphical display.

Selecting Modify > Sections > Merge from the main menu displays the prompt ‘Pick Panel/Section or End
of first gensec to merge’.


The merging of panels is described later in this training guide.

On selection of the first (dominant) section the prompt changes to ‘Pick Section to merge or <esc> to
finish’. The remaining sections may then be graphically selected form the 3D View. Pressing the Esc key
ends the selection process.



If one or more of the selected sections are not co-linear, an error
message is displayed and the merge abandoned.

If the Esc key is pressed before at least one section to merge has
been selected an error message is displayed.



If all selected sections are co-linear a merge confirmation message
is displayed and the selected sections merged with the first
(dominant) section. The merged section will have the database
reference of the dominant section.
