Types of Cross Section
The program allows the user to either input the cross section parameters digitally or to choose from one of the predefined types of the cross section. The type of material of the cross section is selected from the Catalog of Materials or is introduced digitally using the Editor of Materials. The following types of the beam cross section are implemented:
- rectangular concrete wall - a beam wall thickness must be specified
- pile wall - a pile diameter and their spacing must be specified
- steel sheet pile - selected from the built-in database
- steel I cross section - a type of cross section from the built-in database is selected, their spacing must be specified (the type of cross section is selected from the "Catalog of Profiles", or is defined in the "Cross Section Editor", the type of material is selected from the "Catalog of Materials" or is specified digitally in the "Editor of Materials")
All input cross sections are automatically recalculated per 1 m (feet) run. The results of internal forces developed along the beams are also presented per 1 m (feet) run of a structure. Thus if necessary, for piles or I cross sections they must be adjusted depending on their spacing by the user.
Should you have your own database of sheet piles, which is not yet built-into the program, we will be happy to implement it. You may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
