A moment diagram in STEEL Warping Torsion fails or has a sign change from one x-location to the next. What could be the reason for this?

Answer

In RF- / STEEL Warping Torsion, the imperfection is applied in both directions (+/-). Thus, the + imperfection can be governing at one x-location, while the - imperfection is governing at the adjacent x-location. The governing result is displayed in the result tables and the graphic in the graphic. This could be the cause of the described effect.
