How can I multiply cross-section values quickly and easily with a factor?


There are several ways to modify cross-section values with a factor:

  • In the "Edit Cross-Section" dialog box, there is the option to multiply moments of inertia or cross-section areas with a factor ("Modify" tab). This option should be used if you want to carry out the modification for each load case, but only for some cross-sections.

  • In the "Calculation Parameters" of the load cases and load combinations, you can also multiply the moments of inertia or the cross-sectional areas with a factor. This option alters the values either for all cross-sections at the same time, or individually for each cross-section.
