After the calculation, I get an indication of a large deformation. Why can not I find this deformation in the output?


If you define line loads on a line that is decoupled from the overall system, that line becomes compliant. The program checks this incorrect entry and gives a hint (Fig. 1). However, there are structures where this line is kept at a different point. In this case, the program continues to calculate after the user has confirmed the note. However, since the deformation for such a decoupled line becomes very large, it is not displayed in the graphic output.

We generally recommend not to load lines that are decoupled via a line release or line joint.

The theoretical background will be explained in this article .
