can you suggest, how to calculate Shear Area of Pipe sections.
I have to create a new Pipe sections which is not there in the standard section list.
Here's a discussion on that from another site, but the guidance there is sound: https://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=90897
this discussion doesn't give an apt reply about the shear area.
I see a recommendation, "In a round shape the effective shear area Av is 60% the gross area (Ag)...... Av=0.6 x Ag"
was in between 50% (which they mentioned at the start) and 60%.thank you for the reply.
