The Node No. and Location x table columns correspond to the columns of the previous results table 4.4 Members - Local Deformations.

Displacements / Rotations

The member deformations have the following meanings:

Table 8.3 Global member deformations

|u|

Absolute total displacement (not for result combinations)

uX

uY

Displacement of member in direction of global axis Y

uZ

Displacement of member in direction of global axis Z

φX

Rotation of member about global axis X

φY

Rotation of member about global axis Y

φZ

Rotation of member about global axis Z
