SHAPE-THIN | Cold-Formed Sections

Technical Article on the Topic Structural Analysis Using Dlubal Software

  • Knowledge Base

Product Feature

SHAPE-THIN determines the effective cross-sections according to EN 1993-1-3 and EN 1993-1-5 for cold-formed sections. You can optionally check the geometric conditions for the applicability of the standard specified in EN 1993‑1‑3, Section 5.2.

The effects of local plate buckling are considered according to the method of reduced widths and the possible buckling of stiffeners (instability) is considered for stiffened sections according to EN 1993-1-3, Section 5.5.

As an option, you can perform an iterative calculation to optimize the effective cross-section.

You can display the effective cross-sections graphically.
