For design of connections, I want to display internal forces at the start and and nodes of a beam in a result table. However, the beam consists of several members, which causes very unclear tabular representation. How can I optimize this?


In this case, the best solution is to create a set of members from the individual members of a beam. Result tables provide an option (after the calculation) to display the internal forces related to sets of members. Use the result filter function to display node results. In this way, you can see the required internal forces for each start and end node. For a documentation, you can export these tables to Excel and adapt them, if necessary.
