GENERATION OF STEEL, CONCRETE AND COMPOSITE MEMBER CROSS SECTIONS
Section Builder is a comprehensive Windows based, Graphical Software Package for creating simple & complex structural cross sections of steel, reinforced concrete or composite materials. Section Builder includes numerous practical shapes that can be defined parametrically. Sections can be picked up directly from standard data bases. Arbitrary unsymmetrical sections can be drawn graphically using a wide variety of drawing and editing tools.
Complex Sections can be built up by combining previously defined sections with each other or with sections obtained directly from the standard databases. Various options allow the user to obtain biaxial interaction curves and surfaces, moment-curvature relationships and stress distributions for a given set of section forces.
The Software comes with a set of examples and comprehensive documentation and on-line help to aid in effective application of the product.
Section Builder offers a wide range of shapes encompassing the basic steel and concrete shapes, database shapes relating to various standards, bridge piers, shear walls and much more.
Basic Concrete Shapes include rectangular, circle, hollow circle, hollow rectangle, triangle, flanged, angle and channel. The sizes may be modified numerically or graphically. AISC (US and Metric), CISC and British Standard database shapes with standard dimensions and properties. Other user-defined libraries may be added to the existing libraries. User can create general shapes graphically using the drawing tools on the screen.
Properties ranging from basic area, moments of inertia to advanced properties for complex sections, such as like torsional constants, shear areas, plastic section modulii can be computed instantaneously
Area, moment of inertia about any arbitrary axis, elastic section modulus and radii of gyration...
Principal moments of inertia and corresponding Principal angles
Torsional constant, shear areas and plastic section modulii
A wide range of editing tools and options are available to facilitate the creation of complex cross sections conveniently and accurately
Stress Strain Curves for Sections
Materials can be modeled realistically using one of the many stress- strain curves available for both concrete and steel. The stress strain curve options include the ACI Whitney Block, BS-8110 Parabola, Mander, Circular and Rectangular Confined, Elasto-Plastic, Strain Hardening and a general User Defined Curve.
