When calculating a cable with the STEEL EC3 add-on module, I receive the error message “Incorrect characteristic stresses for material No. 1! Please correct this in Window 1.2.”

Answer

For the “Cable ...” material, there are no specifications for yield strength and tension capabilities stored in the database (see Figure 2). Therefore, the add-on module for these members is missing the calculation basis. For being able to design such materials, it would be necessary to create own material and, if the manufacturer information is known, add the missing parameters manually.
