Shows the End Forces of the Elements.




There are two options for the sign convention:


1. Use the sign convention of the N, V, M diagrams. For example, the convention could be as shown below.


for Axial Force


for Shear Force


for Bending Moment

The above is only an example of these settings, as the sign convention for the diagrams can be changed by the user. See NVM Diagrams (Settings).


2. Use the sign convention of the Finite Element Analysis (Element local axes), as shown below. This sign convention cannot change.
