New Review-View Control of Cracked/Uncracked Setting for Concrete Members

Note: This feature goes together with the New 2D In-Plane Stress Contouring to facilitate more rapid assessment and control of the appropriate analysis properties to use for concrete buildings.

You can now graphically modify the assume cracked property for all concrete elements via Show\Alter State.


Note: The assumed cracked property controls the modification factors used for the concrete members in analysis - for more on this topic see: Where do the default values for cracked and uncracked properties of concrete come from?
  • This should prove a significant time saver for those spending time making / applying decisions on what is cracked.

    • The Mode options allows switching between Toggle and Set Cracked or Uncracked - objects can then be clicked or windowed to edit the setting.

    • Additionally the Entity type can be set to restrict editing to only certain object types; Members, Walls, Beams or Columns.
