Can I also determine the stiffness of an existing column instead of a fixed nodal bearing?


Yes, it works. For this, it requires the activation of the elastic bearing in the mask "Edit nodal bearing". On the basis of some input parameters such as type of bearing, column shape, material and the column height, the program determines the springs of the column (see Fig. 1).
