Element local forces sign convention

Determines how the sign of the element local forces will be reported in the Analysis Results. There are two options:

 

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

 

Axial1

for Axial Force

Shear1

for Shear Force

Moment1

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.
