STAAD output of plates finite element

STAAD output of plates finite element analysis
-how to get maximum bending stress-for an element-from the output
-and does STAAD output shows this element as having maximum bending moment(assuming uniform thickness)

RE: STAAD output of plates finite element

Dear Seth
I tried both communities but still no answer.
any further advise?

RE: STAAD output of plates finite element

You can go to the Postprocessing mode and go to the Plate page. Go to the Plate Center Stress table on the right and click on the Summary tab right next to the Shear/Membrane and Bending tab. It would list the max bending moment considering all plates and all load cases.

To get the maximum for a particular plate, you may filter this summary table by the plate number. To do that, simply take your mouse cursor over the table ( anywhere within the table is fine ) right click and choose Results Setup, go to Range tab and choose the Ranges option. In the edit box next to Beams/Plates/Solids, type the plate number and click on Apply and the results will be filtered based on that particular plate and you will be able to see the maximum and minimum for that plate.
