What is the effect of the 'Use selected method also for calculation of all supported cross-section types' option in RF‑/STEEL Plasticity?

Answer

This check box activates, for example, the usage of Simplex Method also for I‑sections, which would otherwise be automatically designed by using Partial Internal Forces Method (PIFM) including redistribution.

If you deactivate the checkbox, Simplex Method or Partial Internal Forces Method (depending on the selection) will only be used if there is a general cross-section available (for example, from SHAPE‑THIN).
