Displaying the result values is too inaccurate. Where can I adjust displaying of more result values for the member internal forces?

Answer

In the 'Global Calculation Parameters', there is the setting 'Number of Member Divisions for Result Diagrams'.



By default, this value is preset to '10'.

If members with very different lengths are used in a model, it may happen that the preset value of '10' is too small. This is then reflected, for example, by the fact that the parabolic moment diagram is not displayed correctly for the shorter members.


To avoid this problem, enter a higher value, e.g. '50'.


Thus, a parabolic moment diagram is also displayed on the shorter members.


The length of the sections results from the length of the longest member in the structure divided by the defined number of member divisions. The finer division of members applies to all members of the model.
