Answer

How is the tension state of a linear element displayed?

Starting with the version 2012, Advance Design provides a new 3D way to generate and display stresses diagrams for linear elements.

As an example, we will use a frame, with a linear load of 100kN over half of the beam. We will analyze the IPE300 beam.

From the "Analysis-F.E. Results toolbar you can choose to display the stresses for the linear elements. In the following picture, the stresses diagram of the beam, is presented:

From the right click menu, you can choose the "Cross section stresses" option. This option will open the "Linear elements stresses" window, described in the following figure:

7 Text font
8 Option to switch between 2D and 3D diagram
9 Option to save the content of the dialog box and insert it in a report

In the following figures the 2D and 3D stresses diagrams for a section from the middle of the beam are shown:
