When materials are used for structural support, such as in buildings and general construction, the shape is as fundamental as the material properties themselves. The cross-section shape determines how effective the material is in fulfilling its structural function.
In this session, we’ll see how to account for this shape using the CES EduPack data table of standard structural sections. We’ll work through a case study that deals with selection of structural sections and complementary Finite Element simulations.
What you will learn:
- See how to use the CES EduPack data table of standard structural sections containing structural properties
- Ideas for teaching the relationship between materials and shape for structural sections
- How material selection of structural sections and Finite Element simulations can complement each other.
