The frame "Material" allows to enter material parameters. The appearance of the frame varies according to the selected material (concrete, steel, timber, plastic) in the frame "Geometry".
Two options can be used for setting the parameters of the material:
- The "Catalog" button opens the "Catalog of materials" dialog window, where required material can be selected.
- The "User defined" button opens the "Editor of material", which allows to input the specification of material parameters manually by user.
The content of catalogs depends on the selection of relevant standard for the dimensioning of concrete, steel, timber or plastic structures set in the "Materials and standards" tab.
