When using the "Section definition"   module , is there any mean to compute the tortional center of a section (group of walls for ex).

 

Please find attached a calculation note of a typical section of stairwell / lift... (without the information ime looking for )

 

Thank you

Torsion&shear center is calculated only when all segments (walls) are connected -see below:

Probably your walls are separated in points where you change their thickness.
