Analysis Validation

Top  Previous  Next

Shows the Validation of the Analysis results. If the Analysis results are correct, then the Model should be in equilibrium. The program calculates the Sum of Forces (X and Y direction) and the Sum of Bending Moments, for the entire Model (Global Equilibrium) and also for each Element separately. There are two available tabs:

 

1. Global (Model) Equilibrium

The program calculates the Sum of X-Forces, the Sum of Y-Forces and the Sum of Bending Moments (at Point X=0 and Y=0) for the whole Model, for the Nodal Loads, Elemental Loads, Acceleration (Body) Loads and Support Reactions. All three Sums (last row of the table, in bold) have to be zero if the Model is in Equilibrium.

2. Individual Element Equilibrium

The program calculates the Sum of X-Forces, the Sum of Y-Forces and the Sum of Bending Moments at Start i and at End j of each Element, for the Elemental Forces, Body Forces, End Forces at i and End Forces at j. The Sum of X-Forces, the Sum of Y-Forces and also the Sums of Bending Moments at both Start i and End j (in bold) have to be zero if the Element is in Equilibrium.
