SACS Post Processor (Redesign)

SACS Post Processor (Redesign)

SACS Post Processor (Redesign)


I was trying to use the post processor (redesign) option in SACS for a simple frame. When my model contain tubular members the redesign worked fine but when I changed the members to non tubular it gives me a warning "Member Redesign Failed"..

Can anyone explain the reason for those warnings..


RE: SACS Post Processor (Redesign)

The dialogue box which comes up when carrying out member review in SACS processor has different input for Tubular and non-tubular. That of Tubular has got OD and WT and that of non-tubular e.g Wide Flange has the member section only. This is the reason you have the error message (memb Redesign failed). Better changing it in precede or data gen.
