Reaction Forces/Moments


  • Evaluate the support reactions expressed in numerical values and the size of arrows for each Pushover Step, based on the pushover analysis results.



From the main menu, select [Poshover] tab > [Diagram] group > [Reactions] > [Reaction Forces/Moments]

Load Cases/Combinations

Select a desired load case or load combination.

Click to the right to enter new or modify existing load combinations. (Refer to "Load Cases / Combinations")


Specify the step for which the analysis results are to be produced. The Step is defined in geometric nonlinear analysis as Load Step, and additional steps are defined in the construction stages of bridges or heat of hydration analyses.


Select the desired reaction components. The reaction components are provided with respect to GCS. When a nodal local coordinate system is defined for the nodes, the results can be produced in the local coordinate system.

FX : Reaction component in GCS X- or Node local x-direction

FY : Reaction component in GCS Y- or Node local y-direction

FZ : Reaction component in GCS Z- or Node local z-direction

FXYZ : The magnitudes of reaction forces are produced by individual components in the Global X, Y & Z directions separately (or x, y & z directions of the local node coordinate system).

MX : Moment reaction component about GCS X- or node local x-axis

MY : Moment reaction component about GCS Y- or node local y-axis

MZ : Moment reaction component about GCS Z- or node local z-axis

MXYZ : The magnitudes of reaction moments are produced by individual components in the Global X, Y & Z directions separately (or x, y & z directions of the local node coordinate system).

Local(if defined) : Where nodes are defined with local coordinate systems, support reactions are produced with respect to the local coordinate systems.

Type of Display

Assign the type of display as follows:

Value : Display the reaction components at the supports in numerical values.

Legend : Display various references related to analysis results to the right or left of the working window.

Arrow Scale Factor : Control the scale for arrows representing the magnitudes of reactions.

Given the types of analysis results for Graphic outputs, generate consecutively graphic outputs for selected load cases and combinations.

Batch_Output_Generation___.png : Assign a Base File Name under which the types of results (selection data in the Batch Output Generation dialog box for graphic outputs) are stored.

Batch_Output_Generation___.png : Specify the Base Files to perform Batch Output Generation, construction stages, load cases (combinations), steps, etc. in the following dialog box.

Pushover-pushover results-reactions-reaction forces moment-batch output generation.png

Saved Menu-Bar Info's : Listed here are the Base Files. Select the Base File Names for Batch Output.

Delete the selected : Delete all the Base Files selected with the mouse.

When the construction stage analysis is carried out, all the construction stages are listed. We simply select the stages of interests to be included in the batch output. If no construction stage analysis is performed, the column in the dialog box becomes inactive and lists load (combination) conditions.


The results output of all the construction stages are produced. The construction stages are listed below.

Post CS Loads

Outputs only the results of the Post CS model. The list at the bottom lists the load (combination) conditions applied to the finished model.

Use Saved

Apply only the (saved) step or load (combination) condition selected at the time of creating each Base File.

Stage LCase/LComb

When the construction stage analysis is carried out, the auto-generated construction stage load conditions and the additionally entered construction stage load combinations are listed. Check on only the load (combination) conditions that will be used to produce batch outputs. This column becomes inactive if "Final Stage Loads" is selected or no construction stage analysis is carried out.

Step Option

Specify the steps for which the outputs will be produced when the construction stage analysis or large displacement geometric nonlinear analysis is performed.

Saved Step : Use only the steps used for creating the Base Files

All Steps : Use all the steps

Output Options

Output File Type

Select a Graphic File type, either BMP or EMF.

Auto Description : At the top left of the Graphic Outputs produced in batch, auto-generate and include the notes such as the types and components of the analysis results, construction stages and steps, load (combination) conditions, etc. The font size, color, type, etc. can be changed upon clicking the button .

Output Path

Specify the path for saving the graphic files to be produced in batch.

File Prefix : Specify the prefix of the Graphic Files to be created. The filenames will be consisted of "Prefix"_"Base File Name"_"Load Comb.".bmp(emf) or "Prefix"_"Base File Name"_"Stage"_"Stage LCase"_"Step".bmp(emf).

Make Output : Produce the specified batch Graphic Files reflecting the contents of the dialog box.

Export / Import

Produce the contents of data input in the Base Files and Batch Output Generation dialog box in a binary type file (fn.bog). Click the button and select a fn.bog to use the same output format.

NOTE.png Import /Export is only meaningful for different projects. In a given structural model, the Base Files are automatically stored and listed.
