Dear friends i wounder if i can control the number of digits that appear in Utilization ratio of steel structure in order to avoid the congestion of the numbers
Graphically there is no option to reduce the number of decimals for the utilization ratio. You may reduce the font size through View > Options > Beam Labels > Font to see if that helps in reducing the congestion. Another way to reduce the congestion would be to selectively turn on the ratios for certain members while have the same for some others turned off. To do that you may right click on the graphics screen and choose Labels and then check the box “Use Partial labeling Mode” as shown next.
You may then use the cursor to “Turn On /Off Individual Beam Label” as shown next.
You may either directly click on the label or use a window selection to selectively turn on/off labels.
In case you want to reduce the number of decimals for the unity ratio in a tabular report, you may copy the data from the Design Results table from within the Beam > Unity Check page and paste in Excel using standard copy paste options CTRL+C and CTRL+V. You will then be able to change the data format for the individual columns in excel so that it reports the desired number of digits.
I hope this helps.
When analyzing a beam with a welded top cover plate e.g IPE 300 TC the actual utilization ratio is showing 0 in Eurocode is it because it can not be analysed using Eurocode
If IPE300 TC is not working is there a way to user-defined that works?
You will not be able to design the sections as per Eurocode if you define it with the Top Cover Plate option. You would need to define the section in Section Wizard and export to STAAD.Pro as a General Section (user table) and then you would be able to get a design.
