Strand7 Software: In Detail: Results: XY Plots
Investigating results in Strand7
You can generate an XY plot of virtually any result parameter between two points on the model. Simply click on two nodes to specify the desired path - the path can cut across elements. You can also superimpose the graph onto the model by selecting a 3D plot direction.
Legends are automatically generated for the graphs. You can also integrate the plotted quantities. For example, the integral of a stress resultant along a path gives the total force transmitted across the path. Moment integrals are also given. Graphs can be previewed and printed via the print previewer, similarly to the spreadsheet printing.
To find the values at any point on the graph, simply point.
