SectionProperties update 3

The SectionProperties spreadsheets previously posted had limited graphics capabilities due to problems with the plotting routines causing Excel to crash. I have now fixed that problem by updating some Python libraries with pip: installing mkl-service numpy 1.21.2 -> 1.22.1 Pillow … Continue reading

SectionProperties update

In late 2017 I posted Section Properties with MeshPY, including torsion and warping which looked at an Excel front end for Robbie van Leeuwen’s SectionProperties program, which provides facilities for calculation of section properties of complex shapes, including torsion and warping constants. … Continue reading

Section Properties with MeshPY, including torsion and warping

I recently discovered robbie van leeuwen’s structural engineering blog, which has an open-source set of Python routines for calculation of section properties, including torsion and warping constants.  The program uses the MeshPY Library for generating the finite element meshes required … Continue reading
