Hello and welcome to another structure analysis tutorial.
In the last tutorials , we create our free account and our first Truss structure.
In this tutorial , we will use this powerful Frame calculator to create our first Frame structure.
In the end of this tutorial , you will be able to design and calculate any Frame structure and get all the analysis you need easily.
You can check out the full project in this link .So let's start it
Define nodes with these coordinates
Define bars with these start and end nodes
Apply support roller x to node 1 and pinned to node 4
Define I section s1 with steel material and these dimensions.
apply section s1 to all beams using the shortcut: *
Define Point Loads :
Apply Point Load P to nodes 5 and 6 and Point Load Q to node 7
Define Uniform Load q with magnitude of -10 Kilo-newton per meter in direction of Z in global system
Apply Uniform Load q to bar 3
Verify your structure and click solve to start calculate
the reactions of the structure equal to :
The maximum displacement of nodes in the structure equal to :
the length of beam 3 equal to 3 m and its section s1 has Area equal to 220 cm2 and Moment of Inertia(Iy) equal to 136846 cm4
The maximum bending moment is -183.01657 kilonewton meter in bar 3 for x equal to 2.68 metre
Now you become able to design and calculate any Frame structure and get all the results you need.
