Question

I use the load generator to apply a load on two members that connected at an angle to each other. Why are the load values on the member ends not the same?

Answer

The structural system shown in Figure 01 is loaded by using the load generator.

The result is shown in Figure 02. Due to the different member lengths, there are not the same load magnitudes resulting on both beams. Figure 02 also shows the graphical load distribution. The rectangular connection of the members to the bisector is considered as the load application length. This corresponds exactly in both cases.

Figure&nbso;03 also shows the check by means of a surface system. These are also consistent with the member model.
