2.5.1        Analysing beams

The calculation of the critical bending moment starts when the user clicks the Analyse or Analyse All buttons. The Analyse button analyses the selected beam, while the Analyse All button analyses all beam in the project. The process determines the critical multiplier factor by which the initial set of loads must be multiplied to obtain the buckling load. The status of the beams can be checked at any time by clicking on the Beam Status button.
