In the model, there are two governing internal forces, Vz and My. In the printout report selection, I have only activated these two internal forces using the "Extreme Values" option. Why are the result lines under "Members - Internal Forces" displayed twice in the printout report?


In this case, the reason for four result lines (see Figure 01) is that there are the results displayed for the minimum and the maximum including the associated remaining internal forces for each selected internal force.

Figure 01 - Printout Report: Members - Internal Forces

  • First line: Numerical maximum of Vz (3.54 kN) with the corresponding internal forces
  • Second line: Numerical minimum of Vz (0 kN) with the corresponding internal forces
  • Third line: Numerical maximum of My (0 kNm) with the corresponding internal forces
  • Fourth line: Numerical minimum of My (-12.37 kNm) with the corresponding internal forces
