a question about model a section

Post by felipe_cordero » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:18 pm

Hello and thanks for your excelent work

At this moment I'm working on my thesis and I really want to know if there is any way to make a composite section with [b]buildingtcl[/b].

I have to model a RC T section, but with a variable material core. I mean, at the section boundary, I need a more confined concrete than in the center.

Any answer will be ok.

you can use two different materials for the cover and for the core.

Thanks for your answer. But what a need is to use two different materials for the core. I need to separate the boundary part of the core of a big T section (wall's head) from the center, where the confinement is important for a long web.

A problem when using BuildingTcl 1.9

Post by buddhasarah » Tue Jun 15, 2010 9:39 pm

Dear Dr.Silvia
I'm a user of BuildingTcl 1.9.
I found some problem when I was trying to configure the elevation of the
building model. In the elevation view, when ever I clicked on the beams, an error message named "application error" poped up, reading:

--------------------------------------------

Error: can't read "NoDefinedGravityDistributedLoad...

---------------------------------------------



If I click the "Details>>" botton on the error message, it reads:

---------------------------------------------------------

can't read "NoDefinedGravityDistributedLoad": no such variable
can't read "NoDefinedGravityDistributedLoad": no such variable
while executing
"set switch $NoDefinedGravityDistributedLoad"
("eval" body line 1)
invoked from within
"eval "set switch \$NoDefinedGravity$thisGravityLoadType""
(procedure "DrawInputModelElevation" line 579)
invoked from within
"DrawInputModelElevation"
(procedure "AddInputElement" line 39)
invoked from within
"AddInputElement "Column Story 1 ColumnLine 1""
(command bound to event)

-----------------------------------------------------

I watched the demo but the same error occurred even I followed your way of modeling. Can you tell me what the problem is? Thank you for your great contribution and thank you in advance for your solution of the problem !

I am from China, I am not allowed to visit the website up there. So, I wonder, could you send it via email to me?
My email is bor_7@126.com
I am very grateful for your patience. Thank you.

I can't download Building Tcl from neesforge.nees.org. Is there any other solution to download it?
