  6. Click OK to close the settings dialog.
  7. Click OK to close the Report Contents dialog. The report is displayed according to the configuration choices that you have applied.

Beam end forces report

The report is typically generated for steel or timber beams in order to provide connection design forces in one of the following configurations:
  • End 1/End 2:

    6 forces are output in the support's local co-ordinate system for the selected load cases, combinations, or envelopes. For each end of each beam span, a single row of data is output for load cases, combinations, or envelopes in the selected loading filter (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz). Select this option if you intend to design the connections at both ends of each beam independently.

  • End 1/End 2 + Coincident:

    For each end of each beam span, a separate row is output for each load case, combination, or envelope according to the applied loading filter for the maximum and the minimum of each of the 6 forces that are output. In addition, the report contains the coincident forces in the other directions.

    Up to 12 rows of data can be output for a load case, combination, or envelope as follows:
    • maximum: Fx (+ coincident Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum: Fx (+ coincident Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum: Fy (+ coincident Fx, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum: Fy (+ coincident Fx, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum: Fz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum: Fz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum: Mx (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, My, Mz)
    • minimum: Mx (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, My, Mz)
    • maximum: My (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, Mz)
    • minimum: My (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, Mz)
    • maximum: Mz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My)
    • minimum: Mz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My)

    The load case, combination, or envelope names in which the maximum or minimum values occur are also reported.

  • Higher End Only:

    For each beam span, two rows of data are output for the chosen loading filter: maximum (end 1, end 2): Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz; minimum (end 1, end 2): Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz. This configuration does not contain load case, combination, or envelope names because they could vary for each of the 6 values.

  • Higher End Only + Coincident (initial default option):

    A separate row is output for the maximum and the minimum of each of the 6 forces, along with the coincident forces in the other directions. For each beam span, up to 12 rows of data can be output for the applied loading filter as follows:
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): Fx (+ coincident Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): Fx (+ coincident Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): Fy (+ coincident Fx, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): Fy (+ coincident Fx, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): Fz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Mx, My, Mz)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): Fz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Mx, My, Mz)
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): Mx (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, My, Mz)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): Mx (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, My, Mz)
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): My (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, Mz)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): My (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, Mz)
    • maximum (end 1, end 2): Mz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My)
    • minimum (end 1, end 2): Mz (+ coincident Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My)

    The load case, combination, or envelope names in which the maximum or minimum values occur are also reported.

Foundation reactions report

The report summarizes the foundation design forces and is available in two different configurations:
  • Foundation Reactions (initial default option):

    6 forces are output in the support's local co-ordinate system for the selected load cases, combinations, or envelopes.

  • Foundation Reactions + Coincident

    The maximum and minimum value of each of the 6 forces in the support's local co-ordinate system are output for the selected loading type. In addition, the report contains the coincident forces that exist in the other directions for the loading type in which the maximum or minimum value occurs.
    Note: The table for the Foundation Reactions + Coincident option never contains more than 12 rows, irrespective of the number of selected load cases or combinations.

To display a foundation reactions report, do the following:

  1. In the list on the left side of the Report toolbar, select Foundation Reactions.
  2. Click Show Report.
    Tip: If the resulting report displays too little or too much information, adjust the content by re-configuring the report.
    In addition to model and loading filters, you can also reconfigure settings for each of the two configurations. These settings provide options for:
    • choosing strength or service factors
    • choosing to display all rows, or non-zero rows only
    • excluding reactions from columns assigned to cores
    • excluding reactions from walls assigned to cores
