Where can I create the arbitrary section of a PSC?
There are two ways to input data for an arbitrary PSC section: using the 'General Section' function in 'Value' or using the 'PSC-Value' function in 'PSC'.
Both methods create an arbitrary section in SPC and then importing it into Civil, but there is a difference between the two. In the case of using 'General Section' in 'Value', importing the *.sec file generated in SPC will bring in the arbitrary section data with the calculated section constants and shape from SPC.
When importing arbitrary section data through *.sec file generated in SPC using 'PSC-Value' function in 'PSC', calculated section constants and shape from SPC is input. In addition, additional coefficients for PSC Design are also input. In case of using PSC Design, you should generate section in 'PSC-Value'.
The sections generated by PSC-Value cannot be used for 'Composite Section for Construction Stage'.
