AD.2007-1001.1.7 Automatic Property Calculations for User-Provided Table Angle Sections
User-Provided Tables (UPTs) of Angle sections require section properties that can now be calculated when the section dimensions have been defined.
- D, Depth of angle
- WF, Width of angle
- TF, Thickness of flanges
- R, radius of gyration about principal axis, shown as r(Z-Z) in the AISC manual (see below). This must not be set to zero.
- AY, Shear area long Y axis
- AZ, Shear area along Z axis
Define the dimensions of the angle (shown in bold above):
Then click on the Calculate button to have STAAD.Pro calculate the remaining properties provided:
