1585641213241-873.png

Figure: Display settings of graphs (planar and linear)

The following options can be modified and set for a graph:

  • Scale factor
    It sets the display scale of the graph (enlarge (>1) or reduce (<1)). Scaling value, which is the absolute or relative maximum of the current result type, helps you in setting the scale factor.
  • Reset absolute vs. Reset relative
    Pressing the buttons fits the Scale factor to the absolute or relative maximum of the same type results on the current structure.
  • Graph color
    The color of the result and the positive/negative values (available for bar elements only) can be set by clicking the “colored line” button and by browsing requested colors from a palette. The button shows the actual color set for the displayed graph.
  • Step (available for bar elements only)
    It is the distances between the points in which you can ask and display numeric values.

Contour Lines

Contour lines are a set of color lines. Each line connects points having the same result value and displays them with one color. It is similar to the contours of a topographical map which connect contiguous points of the same altitude.

1585641240267-720.png

Figure: Contour lines

Contour lines display technique is developed to display results of plates, walls, shells etc. Two types of contour lines are available: “Continuous” and “Discrete”.

Continuous”-type contour lines contain colored line by equal step, while lines can be defined in arbitrary distribution with the “Discrete”. You can define as many colors as you want for the contour lines.

1585641246771-127.png

Color Palette

Color palette is a set of colored regions. Each colored regions are represent values in a given interval. It is similar to Contour line, but not only the region borders but their inner areas are colored.

1585641474410-741.png

Figure: Color palette used for displaying results for planar and bar elements

Color palette display technique is developed to display results of both planar and bar elements. Two types of color palettes are available: “Continuous” and “Discrete”.

Continuous”-type contains colored zones by equal step, while the interval of the colored regions can be defined in arbitrary distribution with the “Discrete”. You can define as many colors as you want for the color palettes.

1585641485097-894.png

    In case of “Continuous” palette, Step sets the interval of the colored zones and so the color distribution.
  • “Value” settings
    Defining a color and a value in the available numeric field, the New option inserts a new colored zone into the palette with the given color line and at the given bottom value. This option is mainly developed to define the “Discrete” palette.
    Delete option can be used to remove the unnecessary colored zone and its value currently selected in the palette with its ◄ symbol of the bottom value. It is equivalent with the “drag and drop out” of the zone with the ◄ symbol.
    Modify option moves the colored zone, which is currently selected in the palette, to the position defined by the given bottom value and/or changes its color with a color set under the option.

Sections

Results of planar objects, which are able to be shown with Graph mode, can be displayed in given section lines.

1585641938966-509.png

Figure: Result displayed in sections

Use the 1585641945869-411.png  Define tool to the position of a section line. Just give the start and end point of the new section. You can continuously define next points with 1585641957701-157.png  for further sections, such as you define a polyline; or stop the definition with the 1585642142638-190.png mouse button or the 1585642135195-915.png  key.

After defining sections, the program fixes the section positions, so the next result - selected for displaying with Sections - will be displayed in the same section lines. For example, you can easily and fast check the same parts of a slab, wall etc. for different internal forces, loads or load combinations.

Support/Connection types

First, choose from the available support/connection types (point/line/ surface) you would like to display. Of course, the results of all types can be displayed simultaneously.

Component

Choose component(s) (force/moment and directions) you would like to display in case of single/group support or connection.

Resultant

The force (F) and/or moment (M) resultant of group support reactions or connection forces can be displayed. Resultants appear with dashed lines on the screen

1585642519336-859.png  Quick selection buttons let you hide all or show selected components on the screen.

Scale

It sets the display scale of the result diagrams (enlarge (>1) or reduce (<1)). The scaling value (shown in the grey fields), which is the absolute or relative maximum of the current result type, helps you in setting the scale factor. Pressing the Reset absolute or Reset relative buttons fits the Scale factor to the absolute or relative maximum of the same type results on the current project.

Distribution

Different displaying modes can be chosen for line reactions/connection forces:

  • Original
    It displays the calculated result values.
  • Linear
    It displays linear mean value of the result by support/connection element, which is calculated by the area-weight method.
  • Constant
    It displays constant mean value of the result by support/connection element, which is calculated by the area-weight method.
  • Constant by element
    To solve singularity peaks at line reactions and connections, the program calculates the average value (constant mean value) of the reaction and connection forces by element.
light.pngIn this case, you can easily insert numeric values by the constant section (Numeric value > Find all local maximum/minimum).

Principal Directions

The direction of principal internal forces and stresses can be displayed in two ways:

  • “One size”
    The symbols of the principal directions are shown with uniform-length lines. The symbol line of the first principal direction is longer than the second ones.
  • “Proportional – scale”
    The length of a symbol line represents the size of the principal force/stress. The display scale factor can be customized according to the absolute/relative maximum of the result.
    The algebraically larger value will be the first principal value, by default indicated with green colour. The algebraically smaller value will be the second principal value, by default indicated with red colour.

  • Diagram type
    Common scale displays the same-type result diagrams (e.g. My, Mz and Mt are moment diagrams) in common scale. The program automatically sets the scale value to the absolute maximum of the current result.
    Scale by figures displays diagrams in their best scale. The scale values, the upper and bottom limits will be set by figure according to its own absolute maximum value (e.g. the scales of My and Mz differ from each other).
  • Positive/Negative values
    The color of the positive/negative values can be set by clicking the “colored line” button and by browsing requested colors from a palette. The buttons show the actual color.
  • Distribution
    The distribution of the selected result functions can be chosen (calculated, linear, constant or constant by element) for line support groups and connections.

The hatch line dense by the figures is the same with the “display steps” of the original bar result, on which the Detailed result tool was used.

Utilization results with detailed background calculation formulas (together with Eurocode references), figures and tables can be displayed by single elements or by design groups.

“Absolute” vs. “Relative” Maximum Value

The Absolute maximum and Relative maximum options of the display settings search the maximum values of a result component in all diagrams independently the negative and positive signs. Relative maximum finds the maximum value of the current diagram with its absolute value for the current load case/combination/group. Absolute maximum finds the maximum value of the same type results (e.g. shear force diagrams) with its absolute value for all load cases/combinations/groups.

Let’s see an example to understand the meaning of “absolute” and “relative” maximum values.

1585643149526-285.pngLet’s display the Tz shear force diagram of a frame structure in case of two different load combinations. The next table summarizes the positive and negative maximum values of both diagrams.

Automatic minimum and maximum numeric value display

The program is capable to show automatically the local or global minimum and/or maximum values of the displayed result. Automatically displayed values will be shown in blue, while values displayed by manual query remain black. It can be set to show the minimum and/or maximum values of all results across all visible objects, or local extreme values for visible each object.1585643235581-727.png

Let’s display the my’ moment results of a 3 storey building. The next figures shows the difference between showing the automatic results (minumum and maximum) for all visible objects and values by object. On the right figure the „by object” option choosed so the the program shows the results of the minimum and maximum values of each plates. On the left figure the „for all visible objects” option choosed, the displayed results will be the extreme maximum and extreme minimum values of all 6 plates.

1585643304188-644.png

light.pngWhen in storey view, ‘All visible objects’ means the objects on that storey

This is also available for each result (even for analysis detailed results, as shown below) where minimum/maximum can be displayed by the Numeric value function.

1585643346937-791.png

The last selected display settings for display automatic values are applied for all the new results, until they are modified by the user.

These settings are kept for the results when

  • they are added to the documentation,
  • they are hidden then shown again,
  • the model is recalculated (naturally, only the display settings stay the same – the actual numerical values will be refreshed according to the new results).

In many cases displaying local minimum/maximum numeric values gives too many values due to small, unimportant peaks. Filtering slide lets User decide on how big differences between result of neighbouring nodes he wants to consider as local minimum/maximum.

1585643372352-790.png

Style Templates

Display settings (scale, colors, steps etc.) can be stored in files (so-called styles) by display technique or by figure. The saving and the loading facilities can be reached at the 1585643406943-807.png  Display options tool. The styles are stored in files with different file extensions by display technique. The files can be swapped between users, so companies can create standard display setting for their own documentation style.

1585643391022-646.png

  • Save as default
    It saves the current display settings as the default (without file name!) settings of the applied display technique. If you do not use a style (see later), the program always offer the last saved default settings when you apply the same technique inside one example or in further ones.

  • Load default
    It restores the default display settings after any change.

  • Save
    The color settings of the current dialog can be saved as a style in a template file. The file extension depends on the current display technique.

  • Save with scale
    All display settings (scale, steps, colors etc.) of the current dialog can be saved as a named style in a template file.

  • Load
    User-defined styles can be loaded from a file browser.

1585643490238-405.pngThe following example helps in understanding the difference between Save and Save with scale after loading styles created by them. The color palette settings of an Mx internal force diagram was saved with Save and Save with scale. The figure shows the settings of My also displayed with color palette after loading (Load) the two saved styles. After loading “Save”-style, the palette contains the same colors but the scale is optimized for My values. Loading “Save with scale”-style results the same scale together with the same color information with Mx.

The display settings of predefined numeric values can be modified by the 1585640762111-679.png  Properties tool.

The position of the text labels can be modified independently from their insertion (clicking) point with Move (Edit menu).

Editing Results

1585640546998-187.png     The settings of the currently displayed result can be modified with the Display options tool any time. The content of the setting possibilities (colors, scale, palettes etc.) depends on the display technique used for the visible result.

1585640554649-888.png

Above Display options, quick change tools give fast and real-time modification in scale/color distribution (step) of the current result figure and in size and decimal numbers of displayed numeric values. Quick change tools work for all type of display techniques. The next figures show some examples.

Figure: Modifying diagram scale

Scale increases/decreases the scale (e.g. graph, section) or the step distribution (e.g. contour lines, color palette) of the currently displayed result figure with 10% percent. Use the “+” or “–“ key of the keyboard’s numeric pad as the fast key of Increase scale or Reduce scale.

The numeric values are refreshed automatically when the display options of a result are modified.

Browsing Results

A one-click browser (Quick selection) is developed for changing between result figures displayed earlier on the screen. By clicking on “▼” symbol next to 1585638202894-971.png  Select result, a list appears with titles of results displayed so far. Just click on the result you wish to display again. The content of the list can be organized with Select result: hide current figure or delete items.

Animation

1585638098430-819.png    The currently displayed results can be animated with the Animate result tool. Not only for bar results (such as dynamic and stability results, displacement, internal force/stress diagrams etc.), but all result display types of planar elements (such as displacement, internal forces, RC results, utilizations etc.) can be animated. That means graph points are moving, the colors and color intervals are pulsing etc. Clicking Animate result starts the animation after some seconds (depending on the model size) by continuously displaying the linear interpolation statuses between the initial and the final states of the current result figure. Press any key or click by mouse the stop animation.

Moving load results

Special results can be displayed for Moving loads, described below.

Moving load maximum

Moving load maximum is similar to Maximum of load combinations. It shows the maximum values of the selected result in all points of the model, under the effects of a Moving Load. User can change the Load combination and the Moving load of which results he or she wants to display.

Moving load influence line

The Moving load influence line shows how the value of the selected result changes in a user-defined point of an object, while the Vehicle moves along the path.

User can define it with the following steps:

The results are displayed similarly to the one in the figure below:

1585637845513-449.png

warning.pngSince Moving loads are based on singular load cases, these result values are exact only in the Vehicle positions. The other points of the curve show approximate values. Accuracy can be increased by defining more Vehicle positions, however, it increases calculation time, too.

Moving load’s cases

Although Moving loads are based on singular load cases, they are managed differently than regular load cases. It is possible to create an animated result for a Moving load. The figure below shows the method:

1585637715517-121.png

The animation displays the changing of the selected result while the Vehicle moves along the path.

The next figure describes the new Moving load’s cases dialog:
