Specifies the properties for the select can.

Category

Select the properties that you want to view for the member. Currently, only Standard properties are available for BUCan designed member.

Preview

Displays a graphic indicating the different dimensions that can be specified for the selected designed member.

Standard

Name

Displays the name of the can. The can name is based on the Name Rule selection. If you want to type a new name for the can, in the Name Rule box, select User Defined, and then type a name for the can in the Name box.

Name Rule

Specify the naming rule to use to name this can. You can select one of the listed rules or select User Defined to specify the can name yourself in the Name box.

  • Default Rule - Names the can using the syntax: BUCan<Can Type>-<site ID>-<Index> where: <Can Type> is the can type selected from the Catalog, <site ID> is the location ID defined in Project Management, and <Index> is a 4-digit unique index number that starts at 0001.

Parent System

Specifies the name of the parent system. You can define new systems in the Systems and Specifications task.

Section Standard

Specifies the section library from which you selected the section name. Sections are defined in the reference data.

Cardinal Point

Displays the relative position of the structural cross-section to the member placement line. Nine cardinal positions (1 -9) are available. The location of cardinal points 10 (center-of-gravity) and 15 (shear center) depend on the section shape. The local z-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 11 and 14. The local y-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 12 and 13. Cardinal points 10 through 15 are unavailable for designed members or cans.

Angle

Defines the angle by which the section is rotated about the member axis.

Reflect

Reflects or mirrors the cross-section about the member's local z-axis. This parameter affects both symmetric and asymmetric sections. An example of when to use this option would be when you want the flanges of a channel section to point in the opposite direction. The Reflect property is not available when editing members that have Seated, Flush, or Centerline frame connections.

Type category

Specifies the type category of the member, such as a beam or a column. The available member properties change depending on the member type category that you select. You can define a custom member type category by editing the Structural Member Type list in the Catalog task.

Type

Specifies the type of member, such as a beam or column. The available member properties change depending on the member type that you select. This property is a hierarchical child of Type Category. To change the options on the list, edit the Structural Member Type select list in Catalog.

Priority

Select the priority to assign to the designed member. The priority is used to group members.

Displays the section modulus for the section's local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Torsional Moment of Inertia (J)

Displays the torsional moment of inertia for the section. This property is read- only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Warping Constant (Cw)

Displays the warping constant for the section. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Flexural Constant (H)

Displays the flexural constant for the section. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Polar Radius of Gyration about Shear Center (ro)

Displays the polar radius of gyration about the shear center. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Radius of Gyration about X axis (Rxx)
