The propose of this lab was to explore the effects of the element size, boundary
condition and load application type on the models deflection and stress distribution.

Figure 1 demonstrated the three different loading patterns, which were distributed
live load on entire beam as load pattern 1, distributed live load only on left side beam
ad load pattern 2 and distributed live lo

Visual analysis and SAP are the software that is used to analyze a structure. The
structure can be as simple as a beam model, as a bit complex as a truss model or even
as complex as a 3D model. Once a model is cre

critical radius, the calculated Fe value, calculated critical F vaue, calculated axial stress
and capacity by using the following
