Composite cross section

Question:

Hello,

is it possible to generate such a composite cross section?


I tried defineid it in SPC (please see attached file) but unfortunately it was necessary to create a cross-section consisting of three parts because concrete is divided by a web.

And then after importing to Midas, I can not define this section as a composite.
How can I define it correctly?

Regards,


Answer:

The reason for the error is that the active stage is the same for Part 2 and Part 3, which is not allowed in midas Civil.

How about this?
Create an extra stage between 01_steel+Ab and 02_Composite B. The stage name is '02_Composite A', for example. The duration of the stage should be zero and no load should not be applied. The self weight of wet concrete for both side should be applied at the 01_Steel+Ab stage using beam load.


Then, select 02_Composite A for part 2 and 02_Composite B for part 3 as shown below. I think this will work.
