First of all, Thanks for this great effort

I have a question about calculating Ay and Az in a generic way. If you have an algorithm doing that please tell me.

Thanks in advance.

Some information exists in this book:
Structural Analysis with the Finite Element Method Linear Statics - Volume 2. Beams, Plates and Shells

Section: "2.2.3.1 Computation of the shear correction parameter" @ Page 41
:)
Thanks
