Dear Sir,

 

Whren I need to build a new section in the Section definition module, The value of the Torsional moment

Ix=0 (See attachment hereafter).

Saving  the section in the database and using it in the main module,  the software tell me that the torsional property is Zero value!.

How Can I solve the problem?

 

Thank You

The section builder module is not capable of calculating Ix value for composite sections (steel/concrete). You should enter this value manually using the section browser (Tools > section database). The user section database is located in these folders:

 

Win XP:
c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Autodesk\Structural\Common Data\2012\

Win Vista:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Structural\Common Data\2012\


Win 7 32- or 64-bit RSAPro:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Structural\Common Data\2012\
