In my structure the load transfer does not appear to be as per expectation. What could be wrong?
Generally these can happen due to modeling issues. Some of the common modeling problems arise from improper connectivity between members/elements or from application of releases/truss specifications which in turn leads to zero stiffness/instabilities.
