Data lists are lists that contain and allow you to access engineering data. Tedds allows you to use these lists with the help of the the Data List dialog box. For more information on the benefits of data lists, see the following paragraphs.
You do not need to open the Data List dialog box separately, since it automatically opens if the calculation requires any data from it.
The the Data List dialog box allows you to:
Access data for a wide range of items with the help of a simple interface.
You can access such data as section properties, grade stresses, and design strengths.
Select a specific item in a data list and view its properties on the screen.
Return and use the properties for a selected item to your calculations.
