How do we define a  composite section (prestressed concrete I girder and concrete slab) in Midas Civil with unequal slab widths on either side of girder centerline? 


For this purpose, the Section Property Calculator (SPC) would have to be used.  You can either import a dxf drawing file with such unsymmetric section to SPC or directly generate the geometry in SPC.
A tutorial on how SPC could be used is attached. Also, please note that only "lines" from a dxf file could be imported in Midas. Thus, if our model has polyline, we have to change them into lines and the geometries can be imported.

Also, the geometry could directly be generated in SPC itself.  The tools for that are quite intuitive.
