To delete existing bars from a cross section, click them with the mouse while in

'Add Bar' mode.


Many loadings on many sections can be added, then all analyses can be done at once.
Analyses that have already been run will not run again unless they are reapplied in
a loading dialog box.
The cross section geometry can be input on the screen with the mouse or by
coordinates using the 'by coordinates' tool on the builder tools toolbar.
To save the color coded graphic of the failed section as a .bmp file, right click
it in the project manager and choose save.
The snap value can be changed in 'Options' or by clicking the word 'SNAP' in the
UCFyber status bar.
To change reinforcing bar properties on an existing section, right click the bar
while in bar mode and select 'bar properties'.
To change a material in a cross section, click the change material icon on the
builder tools toolbar, select the new material from the drop down box, then click
on the material in the section that is to be changed.
To import an AISC steel shape into your project, click the wide flange icon on the
builder tools toolbar.
All text that is grayed in the Reports can be user edited.
To view response of any particular fiber or bar in the section, use the
'Interactive Report' by double clicking it in the project manager.
To view any available data, double click it in the project manager.
Circular shapes can be drawn while in 'Arc Mode'. To enter 'Arc Mode', click the
arc icon on the builder tools toolbar.
User Defined material models can be saved as .mat files and read directly into
UCFyber running on other machines throughout the office.
To add a new section or make a copy of an existing one, use the Add Section button
on the main toolbar.
To automatically calculate confining parameters for the confined concrete model,
click the '=' button on the Mander's Confined Concrete form.
To analyze a section where unconfined concrete spalling does not control, set the
Failure Strain of the material model in the Unconfined Concrete form to 1.0.
Setting the limiting strains in the PM Interaction loading to their ultimate values
will give you a curve of ultimate curvature vs. axial load.
Use the add graph button on the main toolbar to add multiple graphs to the project.
To edit the colors of the different materials and their stress states, go to the
Option form.
To change the properties for the project, double click the project folder in the
'Project Manager', or select 'Project Properties' from the main title bar.
Points for reinforcing bar generation can be entered by coordinates. Click the 'by
coordinates' button on the builder tools toolbar while in 'generation mode'.
To modify code reduction factors for a PM Interaction Analysis, click Code
Reduction in the PM Interaction Analysis Form.

To modify Project Properties after creation of the Project, double click the
project folder in the 'Project Manager' or select 'Project Properties' form the
'View' drop-down menu.
To analyze or re-analyze only a single loading, right click the loading in the
'Project Manager' and select Analyze Now/Re-Analyze Now.
Setting the limiting strains of concrete in the PM Interaction loading to have zero
tension will give you an Axial Load - Moment Interaction such that the entire
section is under a state of compression.
You can modify the PM Interaction Code Reduction Groups in the Options Form.
To export data directly to Excel, right click the bolded text on the data viewer
and select copy. Then open an Excel sheet and select Paste.
