Modeling | Structure RF-FE-LTB

I want to design a hall frame with FE-LTB.

But when the program transfers the loading from RSTAB to the add-on module, I can see that some internal forces are missing. Why aren't they included in the transfer?

Answer

Only loads acting directly on the continuous members are transferred to FE-LTB.

If loads are passed into the continuous member by connected structural components, they must be added manually.

As an example we can mention hall frames with craneway consoles, 3D halls with purlin roofs, multi-span frames etc.

For example, if a force applies to a cantilevered beam that does not belong to the continuous members, it is necessary to add the loading manually. Then, this load must be shifted into the node and the offset moment must be additionally applied.
