Servicebility steel check

Question:

Hi all,

please consider the model attached.

We can not understand why Midas doesn't give the correct value of the deformation check.



The correct values is 2.28 - (0.71+0.22)/2 = 1.815mm

Can you help us please?
Thank you very much.

kind regards

Answer:
Hello,

This is because of the member assignment. As shown in the image below, the member should be separated on the vertical element. The deflection will be calculated considering the deflection on nodes which is connected with the vertical element.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Jihong Hwang
