T.2 Using Member Query
Member query is a facility where several results for specific members can be viewed at the same time from a single dialog. It is also a place from where many of the member attributes such as the property definition, specifications (releases, truss, cable, etc.) and beta angle can be changed for input purposes.
Double-click a member in the View window.
Note: The tabs in the member query dialog reflect the properties of the member along with any analysis and design results available. Changing the model will void any results and thus remove these tabs until another analysis is performed.
Shear Bending tab.
Here you can review shear and bending diagrams for the member for a selected load case. A table presents the shear and bending a specific locations along the member length. The slider control can be used to review the values at distance.
- Select the Deflection tab.
Concrete Design tab.
Note: This tab is only available for concrete members which have been designed using the concrete design command and after a successful analysis has been performed.
The query results for the current dialog tab are printed using the report output settings. Refer to T.2 Creating Customized Reports for details on the report settings.
