Certification

The purpose of this test case is to validate some of the analysis of a heavily-loaded structure with both structural and light-gauge steel, specifically:

- Deflection
- Forces/Moments
- Linear Analysis

The Structural 3D results were compared against a third-party analysis software.

The structure is a 378-node, 929-member frame structure supported by fixed supports. The building consists of an assortment of steel sections, particularly wide flanges, T-sections, light gauge channels, and single angles.

**Evaluation points:** 10

**Solve Type:** Linear Analysis
