G.6.2 Built-In Steel Section Libraries

This feature of the program allows you to specify section names of standard steel shapes manufactured in different countries.

Information on American steel shapes is available in D1.A.4 Built-in Steel Section Library, which include rolled shapes from AISC steel tables, welded plate girders, and castellated beams.

For information on steel shapes for other countries, please refer to the D. Design Codes.

Since the shear areas of the sections are built into the tables, shear deformation is always considered for these sections.
