RR 22.05.00-2.5 Physical Modeler Section Database

STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler now shares the same section database as STAAD.Pro.

The Section Database Manager can now be accessed from within STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler. This means there is a 1:1 correlation between the available sections in both the physical and analytical modeling workflows. This ensures that any section assigned in STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler will exactly correspond to the same during analysis, design, and post-processing.

Note: Castellated rolled steel beams, R-Ceco rolled steel sections, European bulb flat sections, European flat bar sections, European solid square sections, steel joists, some cold-formed steel sections, AITC glulam sections, and aluminium profiles are not supported in STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler.

The Assign section dialog in STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler has further been enhanced to include a dimensioned preview of the currently selected cross section to assist in member section assignment. This is available in the Help panel.
