### bending moment, shear forces, support reactions

**Mo 6. Feb 2012, 08:51**Hello,

1.) I work as a structural ingeneer and when I need to desing concrete, steel or wood bem, or frame, I need as resuts bending moments and shear forces (or support reactions) . How can I get these informations from Z88. I see, that there is very easy construct quite complicated strucutre in Z88, but how can I get from that geometry these results.

2.) When I aplied load on beam structure, I want use not only node forces (kN), but I want use on the beams forces on 1m length of the element (kN/m) . It is possible, or it will be possible

3.) By designing concrete slabs, as a results I need not only stresses but bending moments mx, my on the slab. What element should I use. I have read in theory book , that the best is plate 20, but there are any problems with meshing. Wha is the best, simple and safe way to find these results?

4.) By designing concrete structures I need to work In one file together with slabs (2d) and bems - columns (1d) and as results I can then have bending moments and shear forces at the columns (or support reactons in columns nodes). Is , or wil be in Z88 possible such modeling. If yes, when ?

Thank you for your answer. Last weeks I tried to find a good free FEM program and Iam very happy to find Z88.
