INTRODUCTION


CLASS4 is a new program dealing with the class 4 cross-sections effective properties calculation: effective area, Aeff, effective bending resistance moduli, Weff. The program is the outcome of years of study and work about class 4, and presents the results obtained studying and researching about cold formed cross-sections and about steel cross-section classification.
The following publications are examples of the research done about cross-section classification and about cold-formed cross-sections:

P. Rugarli, Classification of I- or H- shaped cross-sections under mixed internal actions, Journal of Constructional Steel Research, 65, 1597-1606, 2009

C. Bernuzzi, P. Rugarli, Prediction of the load carrying capacity of slender cross-section members under eccentric load, part 1: the approach, Costruzioni Metalliche, 5, 2009

C. Bernuzzi, P. Rugarli, Prediction of the load carrying capacity of slender cross-section members under eccentric load, part 2: the validation, Costruzioni Metalliche, 6, 2009

P. Rugarli, Calcolo di Strutture in Acciaio, EPC LIBRI, ROMA 2008

P. Rugarli, Strutture in acciaio. La classificazione delle sezioni. Commento all'Eurocodice 3, EPC LIBRI, ROMA 2007


The effective properties evaluation is a very complex problem still partly under research done by experts. CLASS4 exposes to a wide public very complex algorithms referring to the evaluation of 19 cross-section types among the most frequent, as I rolled, C, L, Z and Hat cold-formed, with simple or double stiffener fold.

CLASS4 is the reduced version of a more general software, which is able to manage generic cross-sections. If cross-section types not falling within those considered by CLASS 4 are needed, you may ask to Castalia srl a computing service, referring to the cross-sections of interest.

CLASS4 is especially useful to steel structures designers, using cold formed cross-sections ( thin walled) or cross-sections that are in CLASS 4.

CLASS4 evaluates the effective properties according to the following standards:

EN 1993-1-3  (Eurocode 3, supplementary rules for cold formed thin gauge members and sheeting)
EN 1993-1-5 (Eurocode 3, supplementary rules for planar plated structures without transverse loading)
D.M. 14 gennaio 2008 (NTC 2008)
Circolare n. 617, C.S.LL.PP.
D.M. 17 gennaio 2018 (NTC 2018)


CLASS4 computes many useful properties of the cross-sections, and referring to the cross-sections of the types enumerated (see technical card below) it computes:

► the effective area, Aeff;
► the difference of the positions of the gross cross-section center, and of the effective cross-section center (eNy, eNz);
► the bending resistance modulus for positive bending around axis y, Weff,y,p;
► the bending resistance modulus for negative bending around axis y, Weff,y,m;
► the bending resistance modulus for positive bending around axis z, Weff,z,p;
► the bending resistance modulus for negative bending around axis z, Weff,z,m;

so allowing to evaluate the formulae using these properties in order to check the resistance and stability of members.
