In SHAPE-THIN, I have activated the calculation of the effective cross-section in General Data. However, the calculation cannot be performed. Error 2305 appears. What should I do?


In order to determine the effective cross-section properties, it is necessary to define at least one load case (Table 2.1 Load Cases) with the corresponding internal forces (Table 3.1 Internal Forces): the effective cross-section properties are load-dependent.

Furthermore, so-called c/t parts (Table 1.7 c /t Parts) are required for the calculation. Usually, they are created automatically by the program.
