The input joint supports can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.
The following types of joint supports are considered:
- linear spring
- non-linear spring (only in the z direction) - the graph of the non-linear spring is entered, where different forces Fz [kN, lbf] correspond to specific values of the settlement s [mm, in]
In case of reduction of dimensioning moments, support geometry can be entered (frame "Settings"). The support geometry can be entered as circular (radius R parameter) or rectangular (parameters dimensions dx and dy and rotation α).
