Complex Section Optimization

The Section Optimization component is used to optimize the geometry boundaries in order to get a desired value of specific variable. The variables that we can use in the optimization process are:

  • A: Area of the cross section
  • Ixc: Moment of inertia about x axis through centroid
  • Iyc: Moment of inertia about y axis through centroid
  • Ioc: Polar moment of inertia about origin of the centroidal axes
  • Stx: Elastic Modulus about x axis at top
  • Sbx: Elastic Modulus about x axis at bottom
  • Sty: Elastic Modulus about x axis at top
  • Sby: Elastic Modulus about y axis at bottom
  • Zx: Plastic Modulus about y axis
  • Zy: Plastic Modulus about y axis
  • rx: Radius of gyration about x axis
  • ry: Radius of gyration about y axis
