For the designing of connections, I would like to have the internal forces at the start and end nodes of the beam displayed in a table. However, the beam consists of several members, which leads to a very confusing tabular display. How to optimize it?

Answer

In this case, it is advisable to create a set of members from the individual members of a beam. Subsequently (after the calculation), it is possible to display the internal forces referring to the sets of members in the result tables. The result filter function helps you to display the nodal results. The required internal forces are thus obtained for each start and end node of the set of members. For documentation purposes, the table can also be exported to Excel and adjusted there if necessary.
