Cross Section Definition¶


This is a general description, which can be different from the project discussed in specific tutorial. Please make the necessary adjustments by yourself.

Inside the SSD task-tree the task “Cross Sections” is one of the default settings.


With a right mouse click on this task you open the context menu. Select the command “New Standard Section” and decide, which type of cross section you want to define.


The following standard cross sections are available:

  • Rectangle Beam
  • Rectangle Column
  • T-Beam
  • Plate
  • Wall
  • Circle / Annular Section
  • Cable
  • Steel Profile


Simply use the right mouse click function to generate as many standard cross sections as necessary. Specific bridge cross sections will be generated later via SOFiPLUS - Cross Section Editor.
