Line Supports

The frame "Line supports" contains a table with the list of input line supports. Adding line supports is performed in the "New supports of lines" dialog window.

The input line supports can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.

The following types of line supports are considered:

  • free
  • fixed
  • linear spring
  • non-linear spring (only in the z direction) - the graph of the non-linear spring is entered, where different forces Fz [kN/m, lbf/ft] correspond to specific values of the settlement s [mm, in]

In case of reduction of dimensioning moments, support geometry can be entered (frame "Settings"). Enter the wall thickness w; the circular area is considered at the end of the wall.
