Dear All,
Can you briefly explan what exactly the problem. How the loads are acting or the just send me an image of the Geo Model if you have.
regards
kashyap

- it is hard  to model a finite element-plate and the members connection on it .
 
- if you have( Sap 2000 V9 - Or V10)
- go to library (Template- new model)
-  (pipes and plates)
- select from the list (connection) then give the apply forces.

Dear List,

My current project is a very very complicated shape and geometry structure, made of steel. We as consultant with connection design requires a very design justification on every connection detail that we're providing, hand calculation for connection is quite time consuming since I'm analyzing a plate which two or more members are connected at this plate. 

Can you give me an idea or reference on how to model a finite element-plate and the member connection on it-and a good reference of step by step procedure on modeling it-how to input load and support on the model. 

I tried to model a one case connection using sap2000, but I'm not sure wether it is correct or not, knowing I just starting to have knowledge in finite element analysis using sap2000.


Thank you in advance.
