Support reaction other than global direction?

Dear Staad expert,

I am modeling a continuous 3 spans curved bridge and wanted to know if the support reaction value from the post processing able to report according the local coordinate of the adjacent beam (or any direction we specify)? I mean to use the tangential direction for bearings as recommended by the code.

Please share some insights. Thank you.

  • In STAAD.Pro you can specify inclined supports, the orientation of which can be specified by the user. Details are available in section 5.27.2 of the technical reference manual titled Inclined Support Specification. An example on inclined support ( Example 19 ) is also provided within Help > Contents > Application Examples > American Examples > 19 Inclined Supports

    Support reactions along the inclined directions can be printed as part of the analysis output file by using the SET command as shown next
    ...
    SET INCLINED REACTION
    PRINT SUPPORT REACTION
