I am trying to determine what is meant by "coefficient of structural stability" and "coefficient of structural resistance".  What are acceptable values for these?

RE: Stability

I am looking at a printout and don't have access to the help files.  There are printouts that show how the magnitude of these coefficients vary along the length of the beams and columns.

RE: Stability

A quick search of the help files shows nothing.  I'll have to defer to someone else on this...what type of analysis is the printout from?

RE: Stability

Algor SuperSap 3D finite element model.

RE: Stability

I meant are you running a static analysis on a beam model, an event simulation, non-linear, linear dynamic (modal, vibration)?  At this point, I'm just curious of the context.
