Change entity by Render 2

After input structure Check Structure data Connect nodes/members for whole structure 1) bars ending in one node 2) bars end on another bar (t-form) 3) bars intersect

Example 2: Frame

Input via:

- one by one (change node in middle) - or one part and mirror - or

Change nodes?

- or by select node and move with move mouse - or change coordinates in property-window

add bars column in middle, horizontal bar, bracing Quick input for supports/hinges

Check structure data Connect members/nodes to have complete structure

Example 3: Hall

Example 15: Slab with ribs

Project data: Structure type: General XYZ Input with: - Shape 2D element Supports : (free)

- See also Setup Load cases: - LC 1: Own Weight - LC 2: Permanent Load: surface load 5 kN/m Results: De effective width is a approach out of the standard, where the beam and plate are replaced by a t-formed section for the design of reinforcement. By selecting the option rib the forces in the beam are higher. This higher forces come from the total Tsection.
