Butt welds upgraded model

This article is also available in:
The size of butt welds was corrected for edge-to-surface butt welds.

Previously, the thickness of the thinner of the plates was selected. Now, the thickness of the plate whose edge is used is selected. This may have a very small impact on the results in a negligible amount of older models due to the change of multipoint constraints in the analysis model. When the bigger butt weld is used, the multipoint constraint transfers the force into a larger area on the surface of the connected plate.
