[BOUNDARIES]     How to provide partial release to beam ends?

A: Partial Beam end releases could either be given as Absolute value or Relative

From the main menu select Boundaries > Release/offset >Beam End Releases
Let’s consider that the partial moment release of 25% in y direction at the jth end

The partial release could be given in two possible ways,
1) Relative – Enter the ratio of moment that has to be retained. So for the example considered a value of 0.75 implies 75% of the moment will be retained.
2) Value – Select “Value” and enter the absolute value of the moment that has to be retained in the member. So in this case 75 means 75 kN (units) of moment will be retained and rest will be released.
