T.3 Specifying Element Properties
Just as properties are assigned to members, properties must be assigned to plate elements too. The property required for plates is the plate thickness (or the thickness at each node of elements if the slab has a varying thickness).
- To select all plates, either:
Specification ribbon tab, select the
Plate Thickness tool in the
Plate Profiles group.
Specify the material and thickness:
- Type 30 cm for the Plate Element Thickness at each corner.
- Ensure that Material option is checked and that CONCRETE is selected.
- Click Assign.
- Click Close.
- Click anywhere in the drawing area to deselect the selected entities.
