Distribution of Internal Forces/Stresses
Model to Download
Four surfaces have identical loads, but they show different negative moments at the support location. Is this an error? The problem is caused by different result smoothing. In this case, you have set the interpolation by the individual surfaces, so the values are interpolated regardless of the adjacent surface.

You can make various settings in order to achieve a clearly‑arranged display of the result values. For example, some users may not want the white background in text bubbles. You can adjust the background in ‘Display Properties’ using the option Transparent and Background color.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
