Beam Resultant Results Quantity
Creo Simulate supports this quantity for 3D models that include beams. In FEM mode, Beam Resultant becomes available on the Quantity drop-down list when you load results from an MSC/NASTRAN file.
When you select Beam Resultant, Creo Simulate may alter the selections on the Quantity tab. Some selections do not appear unless the item is part of the analysis or design study you choose. The possible selections include:
Secondary Quantity drop-down list—Select a secondary quantity option.
Component—Select a component. The directional components that appear on this drop-down list change if you change the coordinate system using the Relative To drop-down list.
Relative To—Display results relative to a directional component. This item is available only when you select X, Y, or Z from the Component drop-down list.
When reviewing beam resultant results, you should be aware of the sign conventions used for beam resultant forces and moments. An understanding of the sign conventions will help you interpret your results correctly.
