How are SkyCiv Single Member Reports Useful?
How and Why are Single Member Reports Useful?
Say you design structural frames, and you need to submit a report that clearly shows the Bending Moment Stresses of each Member. Traditionally, you would have to either make these graphs yourself, screenshot and label yor screen or worse - hand draw. With SkyCiv's simple drag and drop functionality, you can choose what results to display on a nice, clean single page.
A great application of this is the design of DNV certified offshore skidcars. This certification requires the engineer to analyse the bending moment and deflection of each member (generally a 10 member frame). With Single Member Reports, the engineer no longer has to analyse and manually build reports for each member. He/she can now just build the structure once and generate all the reporting he needs with a single click of a button.
2. Critical Members
Many structures have a crucial member that is focussed on in their design. For instance, an engine crane's hydraulic arm is a critical part of the design. You may be confident in the rest of the frame, but want the focus to report on this specific member. SkyCiv Single Member Analysis would allow you to generate a custom report on this member and include it in your full analysis report.
3. Clarity for Collegues
The clear diagrams allow fellow engineers to immediately understand what's going on in each member without having to search through pages of results or cluttered diagrams. The report is also designed in a way that could also be understood by builders and architects without too much explaining. Most importantly, it is presented to your clients in a professional PDF format with your logo at the front (Enterprise Accounts Only). This professionalism and clarity is sure to leave a memorable impression on your client.
Rather than passing on a report that would require the engineer to sift through pages of results, you could hand them a concise document with the results ready to be interpreted immediately. Making both you and your fellow engineers' lives easier.
