2_Camber

RISAFloor Version 10.0.1 has the ability to assign camber design rules which allow the user more control over which members are cambered. A camber is the slight upward curvature of a steel beam which is used to compensate for deflection. A user can assign a camber directly to a member or set up design rules […]

Envelope Detail Reports_2

RISA-3D version 14.0.0 introduced envelope detail reports for all material members.  This means that you can see the enveloped solution (force diagrams and governing code check values) in the detail report for each member when you solve either an Envelope or Batch + Envelope solution type. This is available for the following material types: Hot […]

Member Defl Ratios 2

After solving a model, you will see in the Member Deflections spreadsheet the following deflection ratios: These ratios are calculated using the full length of the member (L) minus any member end offsets. This length does not consider individual span length in continuous span members. Also the length does not consider 2*L for the length […]
