How ANSYS calculates ASEC beam properties?

Hello everyone,

Today I have a question about theory.

While reading the input files in ANSYS Mechanical I see that ASEC beams have some properties defined. Those properties can be consulted in the following link:

However I want to know how ANSYS calculates those parameters (moments of inertia, torsional and warping constant, etc.).

Could you please send me some theory books where this is explained?

Thanks a lot.
