Hi there

Im trying to create a 3D model of a 'K-K' warren truss made from hollow circular sections. There is no such section in 'Element Type'. Could I use the BEAM4 element instead and just input the properties for CHS sections. Would the results still be representative? Oh I'm trying to do a static and transient analysis on it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
