ResultInternalForce1D

Internal force 1D

Internal forces on line, beam, member. Result in member axis (not in principal axis).

Mz [kNm]
Double
4.500
yes
Result value of Mz (Moment around Z axis)

Notes

Multiple tables in one sheet

The amount of data can be limited due the limitation of xlsx format.
Therefore the results can be written to SAF in a form of multiple tables. In the similiar logic as the StructuralProxyElement.

Index

This attribute defines an order of the section on the beam, starting with 1 and increasing from the start to the end of the beam. This property helps to specify if the internal force is on the "left" or on the right side of the section.
See example below:
See the index 6 and 7. One section, two values for normal (N) force. Section with lower index (6) identifies value on the left (closer to the origin of X-axis of the beam). Section with a higher index (7) identifies value on the right (further from the origin of X-axis of the beam).
