Question

The display of result values is too inaccurate. Where can I set to see more result values for member internal forces?

Answer

In "Global Calculation Parameters," there is the setting 'Number of divisions of members for result diagrams."



By default, this value is preset to "10."

If the members with very different lengths are used in a model, it may happen that the preset value of "10" is too small. This may cause that the parabolic moment distribution is not displayed correctly for the shorter members.


To avoid this problem, enter a higher value, for example "50."


Thus, a parabolic moment distribution is also displayed on the shorter members.


The length of the sections is based on the length of the longest member in the structure divided by the defined number of member divisions. The finer division of members applies to all members of the model.
