How can I get shell forces out on a certain point/area? I want shell Mx and My moments on certain distance from the supports to both x and y directions. I tried first with a simple beam and modeled another smaller beam between the points that I wanted my results (see pic1). I got the moment forces by doing this.
What would be the best way to get any forces on a point or on an area when working with shell structures? Do I need to design smaller shell elements to the areas? I am trying to make fem design of pile supported slab. My goal is to get reduced Mx and My moments, which are on certain distance from the supports (see pic2).
