- Cross-section name (default name is generated by the program, it can be changed using "User def." checkbox)
- Coefficient of pressure reduction below ditch bottom - this coefficient is used for the reduction of pressures below ditch bottom for calculation of braced sheeting - it can be either input or calculated automatically (for classical non-braced sheeting this coefficient is equal to 1.0)
- Section length l
- Spacing of profiles
- Cross-section type - it is selected in the dialog window "Catalog of profiles" (button "Catalog"), or in the dialog window "Cross-section editor" (button "Welded")
