Base Support on Cantilever with Spring / Constant
If this is your first time with Anvil Forgeworx Pro, please see our Quickstart Documentation before proceeding.
All inputs will be made in the configurator screen; a walkthrough to this screen may be found here.
This tutorial will guide through the combination of a base support with movement and supplemental steel. The addition of the movement will add a spring or constant, depending on the movement. This tutorial will depict a spring, but Forgeworx also has the ability to create the base support constants.
- Select Base Support from the Support Type drop down menu
- Existing column
- Create supplemental steel
Next we will enter the anvil supplemental steel inputs under the parts tree on the left:
- Cantilever elevation – 0
- Beam length – 36
- Use brace
- Brace type – angle
- Brace size – 6x6x3/8
- Brace side – top
- Brace location – 18
We have just finished modifying the supplemental steel cantilever, now we will modify the existing column by returning to the mark number level:
Under Existing Column enter the following:
- Profile – w21x182
- Extension below center of pipe: -12
- Lateral offset - 27
Now that the supplemental steel and existing column have been changed, we will modify the support data parameters:
- Pipe center elevation – 36
- Vertical movement – 2
- Normal load – 500
We have now completed a base support on supplemental steel with a spring. A constant may also work in this configuration if you have a greater movement. To create a constant we will change the movement which is under the support data:
- Movement – 5
You have now completed the base support on catilever with dynamic support.
