Max Beam Reporting

Max Beam Reporting

Max Beam Reporting

I have a STAAD model and I am analyzing it for deflections and moments. I have 3 different types of beams/columns with varied lengths. I am trying to create a report to give me the maximum deflections per beam type and lengths. I already did the beam displacement summary but this only gives me the maximum disp. on the whole model and not per beam types and lengths.

Is there a way to setup a report to give these maximums per beam without manually going through each beam?

Thanks for your help!

RE: Max Beam Reporting

You could put those joints into a group and use the print command to output those displacements in the post-processing.

There is also a PRINT SECTION DISPLACEMENT command. But that may be more than you want.

By far, one of the easiest ones is the DFF command (you have to define the joints you are spanning between). Then it is quickly checked as a unity ratio.
