Post-Processing has all the features for fast and intuitive understanding of analysis results. Interactive plots of Membrane Warp-Weft stress state, Max stress, Von Mises with user defined limits to check over stressed areas. PLots of Bending Moments, Shear and Axial forces with slider controls to easily scale them, plate stresses, restraint Reaction Forces and deformed shape are also easily checked.
Plot units can be changed from Metric to Imperial and to any available unit (mm, cm, M, inch, N, Kg, daN, kN, Kip) and derivatives to easily adapt numbers to our used work flow, all this indipendent from Model units.
Special Ponding check features are available since for membrane structures ponding is the most dangerous effect.
All input and Output data can be easily exported in Excel tables, HTML tables, Database and CSV Text files for professional reports. Automatic snapshots of screen Images can be generated on the fly even trough custom scripts for making in a fast way images of all data for all load cases and efforts. Filters to remove unwanted data or hide unwanted elements is also available, for example hide a number of groups and plot axial forces only for edge cables can easily be achieved with this technology.
