Is it also possible to design individual hollow sections using the HSS add‑on module?

Answer

The standard 1993-1-8 specifies, which kind of cross-sections can be considered. The designs are interpreted in such a way, that one wall thickness is only possible for a cross-section. If there is an invalid cross-section, the corresponding message is displayed (see Figure 01). Therefore, the question about the extension for such cross-sections is to be answered in the negative. The standard is largely based on tests / research. Therefore, the focus is on hot finished hollow sections according to EN 10210 and cold formed hollow sections according to EN 10219.
