Default Some frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Do I need to enter the self weight of a beam?
Yes: the usual practice is to enter a nominal UDL of (say) 0.5 for smaller steel beams and 1.0 for larger ones.
What's a PFC?
Current steel data files include additional section types. PFC stands for Parallel Flange Channel, a channel section in which the inner and outer faces of the flanges are parallel. See SCI Publication 210: Parallel Flange Channels - Section Properties and Member Capacities, 1996.
... and an IPE or HE?
These are Euronorm (formerly DIN sections, the equivalent of UBs and UCs)
