Available settings:

Nodal values: Shows/Hides the Nodal values of the diagrams (Axial Force, Shear Force or Bending Moment).

Min, Max values and positions: Shows/Hides the (local) Minimum and Maximum values of the diagrams and the corresponding positions along an Element.

Zero values and positions: Shows/Hides the Zero values of the diagrams and the corresponding positions along an Element.

Intermediate values: Shows/Hides the intermediate values of the diagrams.

Intermediate lines: Shows/Hides the intermediate lines of the diagrams.

Diagram Fill: Shows/Hides the diagrams fill.

 

Positive direction (applies to all diagrams)

Determines the positive direction of the diagrams. Applies to all three diagrams (Axial Force, Shear Force or Bending Moment). There are two options:

 

PositiveDirection1

Positive towards the "Bottom" fiber (Default)

PositiveDirection2

Positive towards the "Top" fiber

 

Axial Force positive

Determines the sign convention for the Axial Force. There are two options:

Axial1

Axial Force is Positive when member is in Tension (Default)

Axial2

Axial Force is Positive when member is in Compression

 

Shear Force positive

Determines the sign convention for the Shear Force. There are two options:

Shear1

Shear Force is Positive when member is rotated clockwise (Default)

Shear2

Shear Force is Positive when member is rotated counter-clockwise

 

Bending Moment positive

Determines the sign convention for the Bending Moment. There are two options:

Moment1

Bending Moment is Positive when the "Bottom" fiber is in tension (Default)

Moment2

Bending Moment is Positive when the "Top" fiber is in tension
