Good evening, I was assigned the academic work of modeling a beam using different methods, including: finite difference, discontinuity functions and CSI SAFE 2016. However, I did not achieve the same results in SAFE as in the other two methods. I have already made the shear area equal to 0 (infinite). It does not work. For example, the reactions have an error in some cases of up to 18%. I know this is not the right software to perform this analysis, but I was still asked to perform it. Please, if anyone knows what the problem is, or what I have to consider to make it work, it would be very helpful for me. Note: It works in ETABS and SAP2000.
