I always measure all bars and sets of bars in a design case. Is this procedure correct or are there problems?

Answer

Rods already contained in staff sets should not be selected parallel to the design. This leads to duplicate inputs, eg effective length bars and effective bar sets or nodal bearings. In the following, the maximum result from both inputs is determined and only this result appears in the result tables. It is difficult to control and understand from which inputs these results now come. Therefore, it is not recommended to size all bars and sets of bars in a design case. Instead, several design cases should be created and a breakdown of the components take place.
