GSA cracked beam deflection analysis
Calculate RC beam deflection based on stiffness of cracked section.
Depends on 'Generalise section object'.
Nick Jones commented
Presumably you'd have the option of specifying a number of "typical" sections within any beam element so you capture a reasonable stiffness?
Don, ...and there's another 'big idea' on 'GSA cracked slab deflection analysis'. There will be many spin-offs from the 'Generalise section object'. We will find it helpful to prioritise those, hence my desire to keep the items separate. I've renamed the 'AdSec as integral part of GSA' to 'AdSec analysis of sections from within GSA'. People who have already voted for that can re-assign their votes if they wish.
This is also related to another "big idea" of linking gsa with adsec, which I think the vote should be added together. Please note that this could also be useful for seismic applications. So when imprementing this, it would better also consider using the results from response spectrum analysis.
