Identification of a Calculation Project

At the start of a new calculation project a dialog box is being opened for input of some data for the identification of the calculation project. This dialog box contains edit controls for input of: order, project, subproject, item, section ID, calculated by, organization, and date of calculation.


Circular Cross Sections

Input of outside diameter do and wall thickness s. Calculation of:

inside diameter di
cross-sectional area A
moment of inertia I
section modulus W
torsional moment of inertia It
torsional section modulus Wt

With a click of the mouse on a command button, the calculted properties are stored in a list which is displayed on the screen. The list can be printed on command.


Rectangular Cross Sections

Input of height ho, width b, wall thickness s and rounding radius r. Calculation of:

cross-sectional area A
moment of inertia Ix and Iy
section modulus Wx and Wy
torsional moment of inertia It
torsional section modulus Wt

With a mouse click on a command button, the calculated properties are stored in a list which is displayed on the screen. The list can be printed on command.
