FE Results display problem and definition of Qxx and Qyy

Hi all,

I am using Robot to plate finite element for 7x9 m. slab with a tiny steel structure attahced underneath it. The steel structure will carry a suspension X-ray machine with the weight less thatn 150 Kg. I use Coon methed to generate mesh of the slab. The major problem is to review the FE Results and to safe. To do those tasks, the program take minutes, which is so strange for my small model. Is thatr any way to make this quicker?

 

For Qxx and Qyy, their unit is Force/lenght (KN/m for my case). Which part of the element doest the lenght refer to, the thickness or the width of the element?

 

I really wish to attach my model this, but it may be too big. Please advice how I can show my model to you all. Thank you in advance for the answer.

Are you sure? It takes 16 sec to calculate.

If you mean reading results process please keep in mind that you have 6 moving load cases with 18 components each and 13 combinations with moving load cases with 18 components each

ON my comp Mxx envelope map for all cases+combinations takes 18 sec to display

If I understood you correctly please look below Qxx<->Lxx, Qyy<->Lyy:

Dear Rafal,

Now I know that I didn't make myself clear enough.

What takes is to display FE Results in the table format.

For the Map display, it doesn't long.

Anyway, I prefer to view the reults in table format as it is more detailed and allows me to customize the output to be displayed.

I'm not sure if it takes long to do the same thing on you computer.

I will appreciate if you let me know.

 

The answer regarding Qxx and Qyy is absolutely clear. Thank you very much.

It is related to number of moving loads cases in  selection for envelope.
