8D.D.8 Design Parameters
Parameter Name  Default Value  Description 

CNSF  0.0 
This parameter indicates whether user has defined the net section factor or the program will calculate it.

DANGLE  0.0 
This parameter indicates how the pair of angles are connected to each other. This is required to find whether the angle is in single or double shear and the net section factor.

DBL  12 mm  Diameter of bolt for calculation of number of bolts and net section factor. 
DMAX  100.0 cm.  Maximum allowable depth. 
DMIN  0.0 cm.  Minimum allowable depth. 
ELA  1.0  This parameter indicates what type of end conditions is to be used. Refer to 8D.D.3 Stability Requirements. 
FVB  218 MPA  Allowable shear stress in bolt 
FYB  436 MPA  Allowable bearing stress in bolt 
FYLD  250 MPA  Yield Strength of steel 
GUSSET  5 mm 
Thickness of gusset plate. Minimum of the thicknesses of the gusset plate and the leg is used for calculation of the capacity of bolt in bearing 
KY  1.0  K value in local yaxis. Usually, this is minor axis. 
KZ  1.0  K value in local zaxis. Usually, this is major axis. 
LEG  1.0 
This parameter is meant for plain angles.

LY  Member Length  Unbraced length in local zaxis to calculate slenderness ratio. 
LZ  Member Length  Unbraced length in local zaxis to calculate slenderness ratio. 
MAIN  1.0 
Type of member to find allowable Kl/r for slenderness calculations for members.
Any value greater than 10.0 indicates user defined allowable KL/r ratio. For this case KY and KZ values are must to find actual KL/r ratio of the member. 
NSF  1.0  Net section factor for tension members 
NHL  0.0 mm 
Deduction for holes. Default value is one bolt width plus 1.5 mm. If the area of holes cut by any straight, diagonal or zigzag line across the member is different from the default value, this parameter is to be defined. 
TRACK  0.0 
Level of output detail:
