MESYS Calculation Software

It is not mandatory to enter the cross section using point data. Also cross section data can be introduced directly after calculating them by a CAD system for example.

If the cross section data is entered manually, also the critical point for calculating bending stresses has to be defined manually. Unfortunately, this point is load dependent. If you just have a radial load on a symmetric cross section this is not a problem, but you have to be careful in other cases.
