The Section tab displays the properties for the wall's cross-section. The property name appears on the left side of the grid and the corresponding property value appears on the right side of the grid. If you selected more than one wall and then selected the properties command, only the common properties between the selected walls display.
When viewing properties for a single wall, the following properties display. More properties may display depending on what you defined in the reference data. Refer to the Structure Reference Data Guide for more information on properties. You can access this document using the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
Select the properties that you want to view for the cross-section. Cross-section properties are divided into several different categories: Standard. You select the category to define values for by using the Category option.
The standard properties that display depend on the reference data for the wall. Because wall reference data is fully customizable, only the common properties are documented.
Wall Cross Sections Name
Specifies the name of the wall cross-section.
Specifies the relative position of the wall to the path. Fifteen positions are available. The location of positions 10 (center-of-gravity) and 15 (shear center) depend on the wall's section shape. The local z- axis of the wall and the center-of-gravity point of the section define positions 11 and 14. The local y-axis of the wall and the center-of-gravity point of the section define positions 12 and 13.
Specifies the horizontal offset between the object and the object's selected Position location.
Specifies the vertical offset between the object and the object's selected Position location.
Specifies the insulation thickness.
Specifies the height of the wall.
Reflects or mirrors the cross-section about the wall's path. This parameter affects both symmetric and asymmetric sections.
Enter the angle of the wall from vertical. You can enter both positive and negative angles.
