Displacement Results in S3D

Display the single member displacement values of each member of your structure. Values for displacement are shown at the starting and ending nodes of each member. Both distance and rotational displacement values can turned on and off with the checkboxes. The values are separated into component global X, Y, and Z values (or sum for distance displacement).

Note, as is with the other display options, what is shown depends on the Load Combination/Envelope that is chosen in the dropdown on the left hand side. The displacement labels can be dragged to improve clarity. You can reset the position of the labels by rotating or dragging the structure.

For example, with Displacement results turned on, the wireframe will always show the displaced shape of the model. You can toggle on and off any combination of displacement results as shown:

Another screenshot:

Clicking an individual member will allow you to view the starting and ending displacement values for that member whilst hiding all others. To reshow the other shear force diagrams, reclick the Shear button on the left navigation menu.
