## SectionExpert™ Anaxsoft SectionExpert calculates the geometric properties of arbitrary shaped and thin-walled cross-sections. It provides a flexible and rich environment to work with, and is powered by our powerful engine, Anaxsoft FEEA SDK, which means that finite elements are used to calclulate the cross-section properties.

SectionExpert produces reports with export capabilities to:

• Microsoft Word • PDF documents, for further customization of the produced results. ### Users of SectionExpert™

SectionExpert is a simple and affordable tool, and the perfect choice for:

• Professional engineers
• Researchers
• Educational institutions and students
