Introduce the required values and press the "Calculate" button to get the interaction diagram and the utilisation ratio of the section.
Interaction diagram

A section interaction diagram is the set of combined loads (bending and axial) that will cause the section to fail. To obtain this mentioned set of loads, a pivot based diagraman corresponding to different strain distributions in the section is calculated. The methodology is based on the Eurocode 2 and the Spanish code EHE as explained below:
