Checking and Ratio

Checking results Once the calculation for the structure is performed, we can check if the selected components (membrane, cables, pipes, etc.) are correct. That is to say, if its resistance and behavior is acceptable. WinTess performs this operation, and displays the results by the button Ratio on the left or the menu Graphics | Ratio. Membrane type bars Membrane type bars have a certain axial force, as if it were a mesh of cables. …Read More

Safety Factors and Combinations

The WinTess software checks if a structure properly supports the loads applied using the “Ratio” concept. The ratio is a numerical value indicating how close we are or exceed load carrying capacity considering the safety factor of any part of the structure. The value “1” is the maximum limit. If we exceed this value, we understand that part of the structure is undersized. If the value is very small, for …Read More
