    Structural Interface Property – the structural interface property defines the joint/liner/joint combination. More details can be found in Define Structural Interfaces help topic.

    Staging - if your model is staged, you can specify the installation stage of the structural interface(s). Note that structural interface cannot be removed after installation. Thus, a removal stage is not available.

    Install at stage - by default, the installation stage will be set to the stage that you are currently viewing (i.e. the currently selected stage tab). You can enter a different stage if necessary.
The Structural interface Property type and Staging information can also be changed or modified at any time after structural interfaces have been added with the Assign Structural Interface Properties option.

Edit Multiple Structural Interfaces

You can simultaneously select and edit multiple structural interfaces with the Edit Structural Interface option.

When multiple structural interfaces are selected and they have different properties or installation settings, the value of correspondent field in the Edit Structural Interface dialog will be display as “multiple” (as shown below). In this case, if you edit the structural interface parameters and select OK in the dialog, these parameters will be applied to all selected structural interfaces. Therefore, if you wish to edit multiple structural interfaces and apply different properties or installation settings to each, the structural interfaces must be edited individually.

Structural interfaces can only be edited individually with the right-click shortcut. You cannot simultaneously select and edit multiple loads with the right-click shortcut.

Edit End Condition

Rather than the Edit Structural Interface option, the end condition of structural interface(s) can be edited with the Edit Joint/Structural End Condition option from the Boundaries menu. This option can be used for both joint and structural interface supports. See the Edit Joint/Structural End Condition topic for details.

For details about defining the End Condition of a structural interface, see the Add Joint topic, as the details are the same for both boundary types.
