Custom Cross-sections

I have a question about the input of self-defined cross-sections of reinforced concrete. I know that it is possible to define polygonal cross sections. But can I also define cross sections with straight as well as round edges ? So any non polygonal cross sections ? And if so, how do you determine the cross-section values ? What is the mathematical background?

Thank You.

You can define tangent points (AQUA manual 3.35 VERT)

If you are interested in the mathematics, the “Theoretical Principles” chapter in the AQUA manual is the place to go.

Edit: Should be AQUA manual (not AQB) as @NAL points out.

Thank you for your help. Where can I find this AQB manual ? I have an educational license. Maybe you can send a picture of the mentioned chapter for the tangent points and theoretical principles ?

Polygon points over tangent intersections are defined in the AQUA module, the previous answer refers to the Aqua manual chapter 3.35 page 3-195 (version 2022)
