Standard libraries

SPACE GASS is supplied with libraries of standard sections, materials, bolts, plates, welds, spectral curves, reinforcing bars and moving load vehicles.


The libraries can be accessed by SPACE GASS for rapid and convenient input of standard properties. They are also scanned frequently during analysis and design operations.


You can get access to the libraries and retrieve data via the built-in library editor by clicking the button at various locations throughout SPACE GASS. You can also access the library editor by choosing "Edit Libraries" from the File menu. The library editor is shown below.



You cannot modify any of the standard libraries supplied with SPACE GASS, however you can create your own custom libraries and edit them without restriction. You can also copy data from the standard libraries into your custom libraries. For more information, refer to The library editor.
