How is it possible to enter/find the following cross-section "I-PAR 700/135 / 6.6/10.2/15" in the cross-section library?


This cross-section is a Parameterized I-Section; it can be entered in the cross-section library. In addition to the parametric thin-walled cross-sections (see Figure 1), for which information about the weld is generally required, the parametrized cross-sections are oriented to the rolled cross-sections.

Parametrization is possible for some of the rolled cross-sections (see Figure 2). This allows you to define e.g. parameters for the fillet radius, the flange thickness, and for the web thickness. To avoid opening the graphical user interface of the cross-section parameters in case of changes, it is also possible to adjust the cross-section dimensions directly in the text box of the cross-section. If a change was made, the cross-section is updated immediately in the background.
