I am modelling a open web girder in staad pro wherein I was modelling a channel section face to face using a plate element in section wizard of staad pro. After modelling a cross section in section wizard and exporting it to staad pro as GENERAL SECTION, a parameter is there named as "ALPHA ANGLE, FROM GEOMETRIC TO PRINCIPLE AXIS". I am confused as to what will the cross section be after that.  I tried to do 3D rendering, but only line is shown and not the above defined cross section.

Will this channel section face to face modelled using section wizard will behave like a single unit, after not giving the battens?

Can some help me out please?

Below I have attached some files please go through that.

Thanking You.

Dear Sushankdani,

As you can see in the first image, v axis of drawn section becomes the Y axis of exported section.


The section will behave as single unit when assigned to any member.


STAAD will not render these sections, but you can see these sections in rectangular shape if you turn on the full section view from symbols and labels (shortcut key - Ctrl+2). This will help you check orientation of major or minor axis.

Dear Sefians, please correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,
Vivek Parmar
