Is there a way to have Midas calculate the effective length (K) factors for steel shapes?

Thank you,

Hi,

Yes, please refer to the online help. Auto Calculate Effective Length Factors option in the Design>Common Parameter>Definition of Frame menu. The calculation method is just one of the various methods. Thus, please make sure that the algorithm is what you want.
