With Bemess I have this error :
+++++ error no. 192 in program SCH2
- Shear failure at node 1379 / Load case 14007*
And I don’t understand why.
In Wingraf I can see that Vrd,max/Ved =1.02 >1. But I think that this result is not correct in my case. I can see in Wingraf that the design shear force is 700 kN. And Vrd,max should be around 2000 kN. How Sofistik calculates Vrd,max ?
Also, when I modify the item COTT, Vrd,max/Ved doesn’t change. Which is strange, VRd,max should increase when the angle of the strut is increased.
