Simply Supported Grillage has Hogging Moment

Question:

Hi, 

I did a simply supported grillage with application of beam element load. I am getting hogging moment at the support area where i believe it should only have sagging moment. I attached my model for your information. Can the support team check whats wrong with my model? 

Regards,


Answer:

Hello,

The model that was sent to us wasn't simply supported.  The support condition was modified for it to behave as simply supported.  The results are then as good as a simply supported beam.  Kindly let us know if further assistance would be required.
