Hello and welcome to your first structure analysis tutorial.
In this tutorials , we will create our free account and first project.
In the end of this tutorial , you will be able to use this powerful tool and calculate any structure easily.
You can check out the full project in this link .So let's start it
Define nodes with these coordinates
Define bar 1 with these start and end nodes
Apply support pinned to node 1 and roller x to node 2
Define material m1 with Young Modulus equal to 24000 megapascal
Define rectangular section s1 with m1 material you just create and these dimensions.
apply section s1 to bar 1
Define Uniform Load q with magnitude of -20 Kilo-newton per meter in direction of Z in global system
Apply Uniform Load q to bar 1
Verify your structure and click solve to start calculate
the reactions of the structure equal to :
the length of beam 3 equal to 4 m and its section s1 has Area equal to 740 cm2 and Moment of Inertia(Iy) equal to 84421.67 cm4
The maximum bending moment is -40 kilonewton meter for x equal to 2 metre
The maximum displacement in direction of Z is -2.604 millimetre for x equal to 2 metre
Now you become able to use this powerful tool and calculate any structure easily.
