Question

Is it possible to assign identical cross-section or cross-section names with the SHAPE-THIN program?

Answer

You can use the SHAPE-THIN program to assign the cross-section name you want. However, it is important to use the same name for different cross-sections.

Due to the data structure saved in the program, the program overwrites the profiles with identical descriptions. In this case, the database of the SHAPE-THIN program is linked to the program RFEM and RSTAB. Doubled data storage would inevitably lead to conflicts on the part of the program.

If the user wants to repeatedly assign identical names, it is possible to delete the file EigProf.dat in the respective directory (e.g. C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\RFEM 5.xx\General Data). This file will be used for saving user-defined profiles.
