Visualization and interpretation of results is one of the most important parts of the program.

Based on the toolbar setting the program displays variables (elastic deflection, moments, rotation) for an arbitrary load case or LC combination, or if needed variables for dimensioning (values of necessary reinforcement areas calculated according to the standard selected in the "Material and standards" tab).

Calculation of values in user-defined points, or on lines, can be set in frames "Values" or "Distributions", respectively.

The program provides several basic types of graphical output defined in the "Slab - results visualization settings" dialog window.

  • plotting structure
  • surface plot of quantities
  • plotting finite element mesh
  • plotting grid-plotting distributions (diagrams)
  • plotting values on surface
  • plotting directions of moments and reactions

The toolbar "Results" in the upper part of the screen serves to selected variables to be displayed and the way they should appear on the screen. The color range is shown in the right part of the desktop. Its particular setting can be adjusted using the "Color range" toolbar.

Because properly setting outputs might be often time consuming, the program disposes of a comfortable system of selecting and storing view settings.

All outputs and selected results can be further printed out from the analysis protocol.
