Markus Baumgärtel Results RFEM RSTAB

In my model there are rods, which receive moments despite moment joints at the joints. How can that be?

Answer

In such a case, one should first look at the distortions. It is often the case that the bars at the junctions were not properly connected (minimal inaccuracies). Due to the unrealistic large resulting twists around the rod axis then arise these moments.
