Why do I get a bending moment in the area around the column in my model, even though the area has been fitted with a line joint?


The area on the right in Fig. 1 therefore receives a moment in the area of the support because this surface is rigidly connected to the support (the surface itself does not have a line joint). If one wants to exclude this moment, one would therefore have to create an additional line joint for the right-hand surface or provide the support with a rod end joint.
