Nonconformity reactions of restricted model type

This article is also available in:

By introducing additional supports to members ends (restrictions to boundary conditions), which can be done through the Model type option of a member e.g. N-Vy-Mz, a nonconformity is displayed in the results tab after the calculation. These are additional forces, that are already incorporated into the overall analysis of the model, and represent the reactions generated in the additional supports.

If the additional forces exceed more than several percent of the input internal forces, the model is probably NOT designed in a recommended way.
