- You can enter or modify the effective width scale factors (Iy increment factors) for the cross-sections of a beam element in a spreadsheet format using the Table Tool.
- The Table Tool in midas Civil is a powerful tool that includes various functions. For detailed instructions on how to use the Table Tool, please refer to the usage guide of the Table Tool.
From main menu, select [Boundary] tab > [Tables] group > [Boundary Tables] > [Effective Width Scale Factor]
(Refer to "Effective Width Scale Factor")
Refer to Usage of Table Tool and enter or modify the following data:
Elem : Element number
Scale Factor : Scale factor for Iy
z_top Scale Factor : Scale factor for the distance from the neutral axis to the top fiber for stress calculations
z_bot Scale Factor : Scale factor for the distance from the neutral axis to the bottom fiber for stress calculations
J-END : Check on J-End to enter Effective Width Scale Factor for J-end differently from I-end.
Group : Boundary Group name of the designated boundary conditions
