PORTAL FRAME -
Uniform Service Level Load, w
Dead Load = 1.50 kN/m’Live Load = 2.50 kN/m’
Concentrated Service Level Wind Load,
10.0 kN acting towards the right at Joint 2
Main Steps of Modeling
Entering job information.
Building model geometry.
Defining member properties, sections.
Assigning loads (load cases,combinations..)
Defining pre-analysis print out, analysistype, and post-analysis printout.
Defining design requirements.
Select from here the units,that we will deal with.Assume that we have m,kN.For a new file, select thetype of structure you wantto solve. Here select trusstype.
