Example 2D analysis model

This example demonstrates the use of the 2D analysis tool and highlights techniques that can be used for efficiently entering data and modifying the model.

Example 2D analysis model (SI Metric)

Geometry and Loading

The truss shown below is to be input:

  • Top and bottom chords: UC 203x203x46
  • Diagonals: CHS 168.3x6.3

Load case 1: Self weight

Calculated automatically.

Load case 2: Dead

Load case 3: Live

Load Combination:

1.35 * Self weight + 1.35 * Dead + 1.50 * Live

Example 2D analysis model (US Imperial)

Load case 1: Self weight

Calculated automatically.

Load case 2: Dead

Load case 3: Live

Load Combination:
