Code setup – Stop at limit strain function

We need to find out what is the weakest point in construction and collapse as the first part. To do that, we provided you with a function called Stop at limit strain in Code setup. Basically, this function stops the calculation when either one of checks reaches limit value to still pass the check. In Checks menu we show results for this level of loads and present percents of how much has been applied.
