RE: SAP Question!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
SAP will not compute composite section properties for you. You can use SAP
for frame analysis with composite sections if you compute the section
properties manually and then input them. You will have to use constant
material properties for the entire section, which probably means using
transformed sections if you are using something like a concrete filled tube.
I don't think SAP will design this kind of section for you. You will have to
assume a section then check using analysis results, modifying the trial as
necessary.
