## Function

- Check the internal forces and stresses of plane-stress 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 > [Type : Analysis result] > [Table] group > [Result Tables] > ****[Plane Stress] > [Force & Stress]**

From main menu, select **[Results] tab > [Type : Analysis result] > [Table] group > [Result Tables] > ****[Plane Stress] > [Force(Local)]**

From main menu, select **[Results] tab > [Type : Analysis result] > [Table] group > [Result Tables] > ****[Plane Stress] > [Force(Global)]**

From main menu, select **[Results] tab > [Type : Analysis result] > [Table] group > [Result Tables] > ****[Plane Stress] > [Stress(Local)]**

From main menu, select **[Results] tab > [Type : Analysis result] > [Table] group > [Result Tables] > ****[Plane Stress] > [Stress(Global)]**

## Input

When executing the Plane Stress > Force & Stress Table function, the Records Activation Dialog is invoked. Here, you can select the target nodes, elements, load conditions, construction stages, and more. After making your selections, click the **OK** button to generate the table. If you click **Cancel**, the table will be generated for all 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. Plane Force(Local/Global)**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Node** : Node number

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

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

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

**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

**2. Plane Stress(Local)**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Node** : Node number

**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

**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.

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

The calculation methods for principal stress, von Mises stress, and maximum shear stress based on the load combination type can be found in the "Combinations" section.

**3. Plane Stress(Global)**

**Elem** : Element number

**Load** : Unit load case/combination

**Stage** : Construction stage

**Step** : Sub-stage

**Node** : Node number

**Part** : The upper surface of a plate element in the element coordinate system is referred to as "Top." The lower surface is referred to as "Bot."

**Sig-XX** : Axial stress in GCS X-direction

**Sig-YY** : Axial stress in GCS Y-direction

**Sig-ZZ** : Axial stress in GCS Z-direction

**Sig-XY** : Shear stress in GCS X-Y plane

**Sig-YZ** : Shear stress in GCS Y-Z plane

**Sig-XZ** : Shear stress in GCS X-Z plane

**Sig-Max** : Maximum principal stress

**Sig-Min** : Minimum principal stress

**Angle** : Angle formed by the GCS X-axis and the axis of the maximum principal stress vector.

In the Envelop Type load combinations, simultaneous stress calculations are not possible, so they are not displayed in the output.

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

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 methods for principal stresses, von Mises stresses, and maximum shear stresses vary depending on the load combination types, and you can refer to the information provided in the "Combinations" section.
