D1.E.1 Cross-Sectional Properties
You specify the geometry of the cross-section by choosing one of the section shape designations from the STAAD.Pro Steel Tables for cold-formed sections, which mirror the Gross Section Property Tables published in AISI S100-16.
The following section profiles are supported in this implementation:
- Standard cold-formed sections from the section database:
- chanel or eave strut
- zee or zee purlin
- tube (SHS and RHS)
- pipe and CHS
- The following UPT sections are supported:
Shape selection may be done using the member property pages of the graphical user interface or by specifying the section designation symbol in the input file.
Standard hot-rolled sections, prismatic sections, and UPT sections other than those listed above are not supported.
