The"Material" allows to select material parameters of used concrete, longitudinal reinforcement or structural steel.
Two options are available when selecting the material type:
- The "Catalog" button opens the "Catalog of materials" (for concrete or steel reinforcement), the list of materials then allows to select the required material.
- The "User defined" button opens the "Editor of material - Concrete" dialog window (for concrete) or the "Editor of material - Reinforcing steel bars" dialog window (for longitudinal reinforcement) or the ""Editor of material - Structural steel" dialog window (for structural steel), which allows to input the specification of material parameters manually by user.
The content of catalogs depends on the selection of relevant standard for the dimensioning ofor structures set in the " " tab.
