Solid Circle
The icon for a solid circle beam section type looks like this:
When you select Solid Circle as the beam type on the Beam Section Definition dialog box, you must enter the radius of the circular beam cross section in the R text-entry box. The value you enter must be a positive number.
Select units for length or use the default principal units.
The figures below illustrate stress recovery points for solid circle beam section types. The figure on the left shows the points for native mode, and the figure on the right shows the points for FEM mode.
