## Function

- Check the internal forces and stresses of plate elements from the analysis results in a spreadsheet format table.
- Table Tool in midas Civil offers a variety of powerful built-in functions. Refer to Usage of Table Tool for detail directions.

## Call

From **main menu**, select **[Results] tab > [Results Tables] group > [Plate] > [Force&Stress]**

## Input

When you execute the Plate > Force & Stress Table function, the Records Activation Dialog is displayed. Here, you can select the target nodes, elements, load conditions, construction stages, and more, and then click the **OK** button. If you click **Cancel**, the table will be generated for all the targets, which may take a considerable amount of time depending on the case.

Refer to Results Table of "Usage of Table Tool" for the usage of Records Activation Dialog.

Refer to Usage of Table Tool and check the following data:

**1. Plate Force (Local)**

**1. Plate Force (Local)**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Node** : Node number

**Fx** : Element's internal force in the element's local x-direction

**Fy** : Element's internal force in the element's local y-direction

**Fz** : Element's internal force in the element's local z-direction

**Mx** : Bending moment about the element's local x-axis

**My** : Bending moment about the element's local y-axis

**Mz** : Bending moment about the element's local z-axis

**2. Plate Force (Global)**

**2. Plate Force**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Node** : Node number

**FX** : Element's internal force in GCS X-direction

**FY** : Element's internal force in GCS Y-direction

**FZ** : Element's internal force in GCS Z-direction

**MX** : Bending moment about GCS X-axis

**MY** : Bending moment about GCS Y-axis

**MZ** : Bending moment about GCS Z-axis

When performing moving load analysis, only the member forces per unit length are required. Therefore, when using the Plate Force (Local, Global) Table to output nodal forces, the results will be displayed as '0' since they are not relevant in this case.

**3. Plate Force (Unit Length)**

**Fyy** : Axial force per unit width in the element's local y-direction

**Fxy** : Shear force per unit width in the element's local x-y plane (In-plane shear)

**Fmax** : Maximum principal axial force per unit width

**Fmin** : Minimum principal axial force per unit width

**Angle** : Angle formed by the element's local x-axis and the axis of the maximum principal axial force

**Mxx** : Bending moment per unit width in the x-axis direction of the element coordinate system.

**Myy** : Bending moment per unit width in the y-axis direction of the element coordinate system.

**Mxy** : Torsional moment per unit width about the element's local x-y axes

**Mmax** : Maximum principal bending moment per unit width

**4. Plate Stress (Local)**

**4. Plate Stress (Local)**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Node** : Node number

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Sig-xx** : Axial stress in the element's local x-direction

**Sig-yy** : Axial stress in the element's local y-direction

**Sig-xy** : Shear stress in the element's local x-y plane (In-plane shear)

**Sig-Max** : Maximum principal stress

**Sig-Min** : Minimum principal stress

**Angle** : Angle formed by the element's local x-axis and the axis of the maximum principal stress vector. Angle is not generated for Envelop Type load combination since concurrent stresses cannot be calculated for the Envelop Type load combination.

**Sig-EFF** : Effective stress (von-Mises Stress)

For the method of calculating principal stresses, effective stresses and maximum shear stresses for each load combination type, refer to the explanations at the bottom of the Combinations page.

The Stage and Step columns in the Analysis Result Table are produced for a construction stage analysis or Hydration Heat Analysis. The Step column is produced also for a geometric nonlinear analysis.

The calculation method for principal stress, von Mises stress, and maximum shear stress based on the load combination type is described in the "Combinations" section.
