Is it possible to calculate American steel cross-sections?

Answer

There are many cross-sections according to American standards integrated in the cross-section library.

The following cross-section types are for example included: 

W-sections, M-sections, S-sections, and HP-sections.

In addition to the determination of internal forces, you also have the possibility to perform the design of steel sections according to ANSI / AISC 360-10. However, it is only possible with the module RF-/STEEL AISC.
