You can also access the Steel Design tab by clicking the Analysis Model command under the ribbon menu, Steel tab, Structural Inspection heading.

Design Output Types

Design output types and examples

PMM ratios

Elements with different PMM ratios are painted in different colors in the view window. From the color scale on the left of the screen, you can see which color represents which ratio.

Castellated beam design ratios

Castellated beams are painted in different colors in the display window according to their design proportions under the combined effect. Which color shows which capacity value can be seen on the color scale on the left of the screen.

Composite beam design ratios

Composite beam elements are painted in different colors in the display window according to their composite design ratio. Which color shows which capacity value can be seen on the color scale on the left of the screen.

Shear ratios - major axis

Elements with different cutting capacity ratios in the major axis are painted in different colors in the view window. From the color scale on the left of the screen, you can see which color represents which ratio.

Shear ratios - minor axis

Elements with different shear capacity ratios in the minor axis are painted in different colors in the view window. From the color scale on the left of the screen, you can see which color represents which ratio.

Axial ratios

Elements with different axial capacity ratios are painted in different colors in the view window. From the color scale on the left of the screen, you can see which color represents which ratio.

PMM failure

PMM failure present elements are colored red in the view window.

Shear failure

Elements with exceeded shear capacity are colored red in the view window.

Axial failure

Elements whose axial capacity is exceeded are colored red in the view window.

Deflection failure

Elements that exceed the deflection limit are painted red in the view window.

All failures

If there are elements that contain any or more of the deficiencies described above, they are colored red in the view window.

Connection D/C ratios

Connections with different D/C ratios are painted in different colors in the viewport. From the color scale on the left of the screen, you can see which color represents which ratio.

A frame-shaped representation has been chosen as an example image for clarity.

Connection failure

Those that contain a negativity as a result of the calculations in the designed connection are shown as a red dot in the display window.
