Force measures for weld calculation

I want to try to extrapolate force (tension) from a welded structure to perform a calculus as prescribed by EN1993-1-8.

I want obtained the forces by measures of a simple truss loaded by transversally.

On each side of the green beam I want to simulate the presence of two filled weld with a=5mm.


I used two kind of measure: Force and Interface.
Looking on the Help it seems the proper one should be the force measure, but, in this case, I think both should be right.
Exept that the results are different, so which are the right?

 

Thanks

Bye

I think EC3-1-8 is not possible for FEA

Thanks, after I'll try to translate from german.
Eurocode apart, I don't understand why there is difference between the two measure.

Re: Force measures for weld calculation

... you need force AND moment ...

Re: Force measures for weld calculation

So what you've done is to change the reference in the interface measure definition.
Yeah, I had not seen this option in the measure.
But at least now it all adds up with my initial idea reasoning that the two measure must be egual.
