Results toolbar

Once the analysis is finished, we are able to display the forces acting on the beam. To do so, go to the context selector and click on Results. The sidebar allows you to toggle various forces such as moment, shear force, axial force, and deflection. The plus and minus signs let you exaggerate or reduce the representation of the force curves, although the actual curve values will remain unaffected. Through the project tree handler, you can choose to view of all load combinations simultaneously or one at a time.

These options are mirrored in the menu under the Diagrams header. This menu also has an additional option named Loadcase... . That option opens a dialog that offers the option of deciding which load to display. Finally, the menu also allows the user to reset zoom factor.


When in Results mode (i.e. viewing analysis results), the Tables option appears as a new menu, allowing you to visualize various factors related to analysis.

Joint forces


The joint forces table shows the calculated section forces. M, V and N are displayed for each joint, by load combination.

Joint displacements


Joint displacement shows the calculated joint displacement for each joint, by load combination.

Support reactions


Support reactions shows calculated support reactions in x and y- directions and moments for supported joints. These support reactions can be selected by load combination.

Max/min tables


Max/min tables shows the calculated maximum positive and maximum negative forces as well as stresses for each member with current distances, together with respective moments, shear forces, axial forces and stresses acting at the same point. These values can be selected by load combination.

Equilibrium check


Equilibrium check shows an equilibrium check for every load combination.
