T.2 Producing an on-screen report

Occasionally, we will come across a need to obtain results conforming to certain restrictions, such as, say, the resultant node displacements for a few selected nodes, for a few selected load cases, sorted in the order from low to high, with the values reported in a tabular form. The facility which enables us to obtain such customized on-screen results is the Report menu on top of the screen.

Here, you will create a report that includes a table with the member major axis moment (MZ) values sorted in the order High to Low, for members 1 and 4 for all the load cases.

Note: The Beam Cursor tool is active when the Beam Results page is selected.
  1. Press and hold <Ctrl> and click both members 1 and 4 in the View window to select them.
  2. On the Results ribbon tab, select the Reports > Beam End Forces tool in the Reports group.

    The Beam End Force dialog opens.

  3. Specify the report contents:
    1. Select the Sorting tab.
    2. Select the Moment-Z option in the Sort By End Force group.
    3. Select List from High to Low option in the Set Sorting Order group.
    4. Check the Absolute Values option in the If Sorting done group.
  4. Select the Loading tab and ensure all the five load cases are added to the Selected list.
  5. (Optional) You can save this report for future use,
    1. Select the Report tab
    2. Type a Title for the report.
    3. Set the Save Report check box.
  6. Click OK.

    The member end forces sorted table opens with the MZ values sorted from High to Low based on Absolute numbers.

  7. (Optional) To print this table, right-click anywhere within the table and select Print
