Reaction forces are reduced

Question asked by Richard Colwell on Apr 16, 2012

Ok, I have a weldment that I'm analyzing as beams. the frame supports 25000 lbs force. under Results I see a List Result Force option. It should show the same as the force I put in, but instead it is exactly 85% of the force I put in (21250 lbs) is this an error in the software or in my set up? I tried taking soft springs off and some other things but its consistantly reducing the forces.
