General Section Designer is a tool that calculates the section properties, interaction curves, moment curvatures, and stress distribution of a general shape of section.
Scope of GSD:
Definition of any irregular cross-section.
Calculation of Section properties
Generation of P-M, P-My-Mz, M-M interaction curves
Calculation of Section Capacity (in flexure) and Safety Ratio based on member forces.
Generation of Moment-Curvature curve.
Plot of Stress contours for all the cross-sections.
All the above features are supported for: RC sections, Steel sections and Composite sections.
