Results

Output

A wide choice of results may be displayed on the screen or printed. Output results available include displacements, forces, beam stresses, reactions, and analysis details. Tabular output can contain summaries of maximum and minimum values present in the selected output

Output can be in the form of tables of results, or graphical views showing diagrams or contours

The units used for output may be specified interactively as standard or non-standard and default to those used for input

The axes directions in which results are given may be global, local (nodal or element) or user-defined

User-defined axes may be Cartesian or cylindrical

The format of numeric output may be specified in terms of either significant figures or decimal places

  • output can be in the form of tables of results, or graphical views showing diagrams or contours
  • units used for output may be specified interactively as standard or non-standard and default to the model units
  • axes directions in which results are given may be global, local (nodal or element) or user-defined
  • the format of numeric output may be specified in terms of either significant figures or decimal places
  • the range of options for output is extensive
  • intermediate beam results
    • displacements, forces, stresses etc. are calculated at automatically determined 'interesting' points along beam and bar elements
    • intermediate beam results are calculated on-the-fly
  • design results are calculated on-the-fly
  • Selective storage of results to minimise file size
