display beam deflections along the length of the beam

Question:

Hi,

Is there a way to display beam deflections along the length of the beam? Current deflections are only displayed at nodes, therefore unless you subdivide your beams there is no displacement displayed along the beam length using the deformations display options.

I know it can be done via beam detailed analysis, however this can be quite tedious as it requires you to look at each beam individually.

Thanks.


Answer:Hi ,

You can confirm the deflection along the length of beam by selecting [Real Deform] in deformation type fields.
Please refer to the figure below.

Thank you.
