Is it possible to use the table to evaluate which member has the greatest internal forces in relation to other members?


Yes, it is possible.
The result tables show in color whether there are the positive or negative internal forces and what is the relation to the extreme values. The negative values are symbolized by red bars, the positive ones by blue bars. Thus, the table also allows for a visual evaluation of results.

The result tables of the design modules use color scales to represent the respective design ratios. In this way, the governing locations are apparent immediately.
