One is "happiness" (OK!) while the second is purely "unhappiness" (KO!!!).Ties and struts are reversed.That's one of the reasons why I think that it is better to handle a strong equilibred modeling.I 100% on board with you for not solving the truss using F.x & F.y equilibrium alone - frankly I would not sleep well at night if I did. Lets keep things in perspective though. I am solving stru & tie model and strut and tie is looking at a solid chunk of concrete. Struts and ties are just the stress fields (is this a correct term?) within that blob of concrete. It ain't going nowhere. And is completely stable. (take a look at this deep beam crossection for exampleIf you solve strut and tie using truss model you are poised to introduce either unnecessary B.C. (boundary conditions) or redundant members.We might be comparing apples to oranges here.All said though, I do appreciate the cleanliness of your solution and its presenation.CheersP.S.: I use EXCEL to viasualize the geometry of said stress fields within the real concrete section. If I did not there would not be an easy way to confirm that my struts are within the concrete chunk. That would be a no go for me . I suppose I could plot the concrete section myself... But hey, there is no harm in letting drafters do the drafting Edited by user 14 March 2016 19:15:23(UTC)  | Reason: Not specified

Say if in a for() loop I came across a string "cat44" I would like to create & assign value to variable cat44:="Meow". str2num("cat44" :="Meow" predictably does not work.Edited by user 24 November 2016 19:41:57(UTC)  | Reason: Not specified

Is this at all possible?Is there another solution to waht I am trying to achieve?Thanks!Edited by user 29 December 2016 00:58:38(UTC)  | Reason: Not specified
