Graphical and tabular data
Change the shape selection (HP12, for instance)
Hover over the chart data points
All properties for a user’s selection (2L4X3X3/8X3/4SLBB
, for instance)
Just start typing 2L4 and the drop down will filter to your text

Same old idea; this my version of ‘Hello World’. WT Strut Capacity (eccentrically loaded)
I transformed my WT strut spreadsheet into a single program function with only 8 inputs.
def WTStrutEcc(sh_name, stl_name, P_load, Lb_feet, Gusset_thickness, Stem_in_CompressionQ, Axial_amplificationQ, Consider_selfweightQ):
Two databases are used; one for shape properties, and one for steel properties.
Notice the optional plot.
First, that I can build new apps, and seamlessly link them into what I have already.
Second, that the programming is readable.
Lc_over_rmin_smallQ = Lc_over_rmin <= Lc_over_criteria x0 = sh.Y - sh.TF / 2 y0 = sh.X r0_bar_squared = x0 ** 2 + y0 ** 2 + (sh.IX + sh.IY) / sh.A H = 1 - (x0 ** 2 + y0 ** 2) / r0_bar_squared Fex = (PI / (Lcx / my_rx)) ** 2 * E Fey = (PI / (Lcy / my_ry)) ** 2 * E Fez = ((PI / (Lcz) ** 2 * E * sh.CW + G * sh.J)) * (1 / sh.A / r0_bar_squared) FE_E4 = ((Fey + Fez) / 2 / H) * (1 - SQRT(1 - (4 * Fey * Fez * H) / (Fey + Fez) ** 2)) Fe_nonslender = (PI / Lc_over_rmin) ** 2 * E
Third, that handling a large amount of data is quick and easy.These 2 are just UI (user interface) demos
