D3.E.1 Cross-Sectional Properties
The Tables are currently available for the following shapes:
- Channel with Lips
- Channel without Lips
- Z with Lips
Shape assignment may be done using the Properties - Whole Strucutre dialog of the graphical user interface (GUI) or by specifying the section designation symbol in the input file.
The properties listed in the tables are gross section properties. STAAD.Pro uses unreduced section properties in the structure analysis stage. Both unreduced and effective section properties are used in the design stage, as applicable.
