RISASection allows the user to define any type of complex cross section either by combining standard shapes or by defining new shapes. Multiple materials are permitted in the same section. RISASection calculates all the section properties, including the torsion constant. Sections created in RISASection may be used in RISA-3D, RISA-2D, and RISAFloor.

RISASection software RISASection Specifications

• Sections can be created by combing basic concrete shapes, hot rolled steel shapes, cold formed steel shapes, HSS shapes and built-up shapes.
• Section properties are computed immediately and are automatically updated after modification of the Section.
• The program works with a completely interactive, graphical interface so you can easily edit the dimensions.
• Geometric properties may be computed using gross section, homogeneous section, or on the basis of equivalent section.
• The program works in mm, cm, m, inch and foot units
• Complete integration with RISA-3D, RISAFloor and RISA-2D.
• Multiple Sections can be defined and edited at the same time
• The program shows the location of the centroid and overall size of Section
• Different color is assigned to each type of Shape and may be modified by the user
• A comprehensive report can be generated including summary of overall properties of each individual Shape in the Section.
• The graphic view and the output show the shape and dimensions of the Shapes and Sections and also show the rendered, solid view.
• Several sections can be defined in a single project/working file.
• The program has extensive report generation facility to create professional looking calculation reports, with full formatting options
• Graphic output can be obtained in various standard formats
• Unlimited Undo option is available.
