Understanding Your RISA-3D Model Using Graphics

The Detail Report is great for one member, but you often want to see the entire model’s forces or performance in RISA-3D. You can use the Plot Options or the customized toolbar to display color coding or force diagrams directly on your entire model.

The Plot Options > Members tab can turn on your color coding based on a long list of different options; one of the most useful, shown here, is the Unity Bending check. 

The code check value can be displayed directly on the color coded members with red indicating the member is failing the code check.

The force diagrams can also be displayed from the Plot Options > Members tab by selecting the Axial, Moment or Shear results. This helps you see the different segments in one picture in order to understand the entire model.
