    Hi,

    To calculate reaction force, you used R= Kglobal*Ufull- Fglobal equation. What I want to ask is whether the Fglobal matrix used in the reaction forces calculation matrix is the Fglobal matrix calculated at the beginning of the problem, or did you use the Fglobal matrix obtained after the 2nd stage while explaining the direct elimination method? For this question, it is not important because the known displacements are zero, but for another guestion I did not fully understand it.

    We have to use the Fglobal vector before applying the elimination method.
