Question

How can I calculate stresses in SHAPE‑THIN?

Answer

If you want to calculate stresses in SHAPE‑THIN, it is necessary to create at least one load case. You can create a new load case by using:

  • Menu "Insert" → "Loads" → "New Load Case"

  • Shortcut menu of the "Load Cases" entry in the navigator

  • Entry in Table "2.1 Load Cases"

Furthermore, it is necessary to define internal forces. You can enter the internal forces by using:

  • Menu "Insert" → "Loads" → "3.1 Internal Forces" → "Dialog Box"

  • Entry in Table "3.1 Internal Forces"

  • Import of internal forces from RFEM or RSTAB in Table "3.1 Internal Forces"

After the calculation, you can display the stresses graphically and in tables (Figure 01). This is also shown in the video.
