Standard Eurocode concrete

This database consists of predefined sections, some for example-purposes, others are cross sections from manufacturers.

Non-standard concrete

The Non-standard database is a user-defined database. It will save and contain all the user defined cross sections created by the user.

By selecting the Non-standard concrete database on the left and one of the supported cross sections on the right it is possible to see the stored cross section, and the program will give an option to [Add] new sections.
