Pile Cap One Way Shear in MIDAS GEN

Pile Cap One Way Shear in MIDAS GEN


I expect your valuable comments regarding the extraction of Shear forces from the plate Elements created by MIDAS GEN/Civil.
For the One way Shear Value in Cutting line diagram shows 100.2 KN, But for the one way shear design this value shows Vu = -6576.3852 kN, as attached file how can I cross check this shear value Vu.

RE: Pile Cap One Way Shear in MIDAS GEN

could be that your V is along a finite line at your cutting location while Vu is the summation of the Finite Elements over the width of the pile cap. not familiar with Midas so this is just a guess based on the document you provided.
