Storey Results

 

2013

Introduction

Function Storey result allows for viewing the results for one dimensional (beams and columns) and two dimensional (wall, plates and shells) entities together in one window and preview. The only prerequisite is to define a storey and assign it a name.

Detailed information

In the menu Line Grid and Storeys, a storey can be defined easily (item Storeys) by using intuitive menus and guiding dialogues. After the calculation, storey results are located in the menu Results (item Storey Results). This functionality allows for data input, parameters in the analytical model and result output to be linked directly to a particular storey of a building. Brief or detailed storey results may be displayed.

Summary Storey Results

Summary storey results are available only when the reduced modal analysis is enabled.

Types of results:

For mass combinations

  • Storey data: mass & mass center of each storey
  • Displacements of storey mass center per mode
  • Accelerations of storey mass center per mode

For seismic load cases

  • Displacements of storey mass center
  • Accelerations of storey mass center

Detailed Storey Results

Type of results

Internal forces in supporting members

  • Selection by storey
  • Extreme by member (also for walls !)
  • Walls & columns on the same drawing
  • Simple choice of section level
  • Display of average & total value for walls
  • Available for static & seismic results
  • Also suitable e.g. for load descending

Resultant forces in supporting members

  • Resultant for each wall on the same drawing
  • Clear display of more components
  • + all the key points mentioned previously

Resultant forces in supporting members per storey

  • Resultant of all supporting members at once (walls + columns combined)
  • + all the key points mentioned previously

Pitcure: Internal forces
