For example, instead of saying "The program calculates wrong deflections", say "For load case "DL", the UZ deflection of joint "7" is 3 inches, but my hand calculation indicate that the deflection should be only 2.8 inches. Also, provide easy-to-follow calculations and sketches to justify your expectations.
