Concrete density

Question:

Can I change density in standard properties? As per as5100 density of concrete is 25kN/m3 and in Midas it is 23.54. If not if using user defined materials will calculate capacity of post tensioned concrete?
Answer:

Hi,

Yes. In the Material Data dialog box, 'Type of Design ' should be Concrete in order to calculate capacity of post tensioned concrete. Please select None in the Concrete Standard and change the weight density to 25 kN/m3. 

If you select None, the strength of concrete is lost. So go to PSC tab in the ribbon menu and click PSC Design Material to definethe strength of concrete for the user defined material. That's it.
