The slave joint is the joint that has the
same deformation(s) as the master joint. In other words, if you
(M) matster joint, and (S) slave joint, you can enforce
joint (S) to have the same deformation(s) as joint (M). Consider a
horizontal frame element strats with joint (20) and ends with joint (21) and
now you want to ignore the axial deformation in this element, you can make
joint 21 as a slave joint to joint 20 (the matster joint) in the
Hope this will help
I am modelling a diaphragm with STAAD III. I always have the doubt
about what is the master joint and what are the slave joints. I have read
the manual many times and it is not clear.
