You can extend the section database easily by entering new section; section properties are calculated automatically (for entered dimensions) for standard profile types. You can use Prosec to calculate properties of irregular shapes and add them as custom sections.

Material Database

Properties for various grades of steel, concrete and timber available in several countries to use with the Frame Analysis module. The material properties recognise different approaches in design codes, e.g. concrete cylinder strength vs. cube strength. The database also includes non-linear stres-strain curves that you can use for non-linear analyses in Frame Analysis.
