Hello, TIMO Structural new formed Community
Last days I worked at one verification task. The deal is the common (not simple) samples of engineering analysis there are in Samples+ library which are available from Start Page of TS (TIMO Structural). I decided to test one of them by comparison with Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis (RS)  famous the world class software for structural analysis in Civil Engineering and many fields also. As I understand I can do it for my educational purposes within student license. From start point I was planning to test with goal to present one-two of my successful or not successful results, but such educational training became so thrill that I am going to present a series of post here. Today I will try to present reactions values in task. For better view the button Pres is pressed.
The sample is next (please see it in Samples+ library): It is interesting to notice that TS has not highlighting of physical magnitude values dimension. As I understand it means that I can use any standard dimensions for my private goals. Therefore the samples input values I will understand as SI values (SI - Le Système International d'Unités). By this way beams geometry and material characteristics are following:

 Characteristics Value Dimension Moment Inertia Ix=25.132∙10-8 m4 Moment Inertia Iy=12.566∙10-8 m4 Moment Inertia Iz=25.132∙10-8 m4 Cross-section area A=12.566∙10-4 m2 Shear Modulus G=7.884615∙1010 N/m2[Pa] Young Modulus E=2.050000∙1011 N/m2[Pa]

 Distributed Force along X Axis 400 N/m Distributed Force along Y Axis -500 N/m Distributed Force along Z Axis -700 N/m Concentrated Force Fy=-15000 N Concentrated Force Fx=(±)2000 two points with different directions N Concentrated Moment Mx=5000 Nm

TIMO Nodes numeration and reactions values are demonstrated directly by next figure. The scheme of the same construction in RS is presented below It is important to notice that local coordinates for beam (rod) are different in systems. This feature is demonstrated by figures below  As we see in RS the center line of a bar is X Axis, but it is Z Axis in TS. Vertical Beam Axis is Z Axis in RS and Y Axis in TS.
Possibly as I suppose it will be better to take into account to developers of TS to correspond to RS rules concerning directions. TS rules work in Russian universities (books and traditions) although.
As we see in Reactions table in RS it uses by my choice kN and kNm dimensions for forces and moments. Therefore I will divide TS reactions values to 103 for direct comparison. Also I must detect Nodes numeration correspondence. The next table shows such equivalence exactly because.

 RS Nodes TS Nodes 6 7 3 3 1 2 9 9

Taking into account nodes numeration as well as axes directions in both systems I will put values as is for correct comparison. The forces results are following:

 RS, kN TS, kN Rx = 3,948512972 (Node 6) Rz = 3,949047788291382 (Node 7) Ry = 9,431097880 Rx = 9,431258443051716 Rz = -126,368281523 Ry = -126,36913910101952 Rx = 113,751588746 (Node 3) Rz = 113,75102540635972 (Node 3) Ry = 0,955669276 Rx = 0,955835496580183 Rz = -256,238467839 Ry = -256,23759062304057 Rx = 101,317621006  (Node 1) Rz = 101,3174577909848 (Node 2) Ry = -67,953524947 Rx = -67,95365476811648 Rz = 247,216506030 Ry = 247,2157158446303 Rx = 19,786662736 (Node 9) Rz = 19,78680811016134 (Node 9) Ry = -78,892891043 Rx = -78,89305147075273 Rz = 335,964804375 Ry = 335,965558809243

And for moments the values are following:

 RS, kNm TS, kNm Mx = -9,191448732 (Node 6) Mz = -9,191647925078489 (Node 7) My = -13,384826760 Mx = -13,38427486263303 Mz = 2,944739622 My = 2,9449083724587917 Mx = -7,099172983 (Node 3) Mz = -7,099369842015649 (Node 3) My = 49,279635738 Mx = 49,27904884304909 Mz = 2,259545367 My = 2,259717088932388 Mx = 26,521285181 (Node 1) Mz = 26,521543211808705 (Node 2) My = 46,506033951 Mx = 46,50551287242521 Mz = 1,910751565 My = 1,910927763794074 Mx = 27,704755699 (Node 9) Mz = 27,70501556869212 (Node 9) My = -11,373474091 Mx = -11,372992020209767 Mz = 2,594623772 My = 2,5947972952421255
I really do not know do we need in any conclusions?!

As we see in RS the center line of a bar is X Axis, but it is Z Axis in TS. Vertical Beam Axis is Z Axis in RS and Y Axis in TS.
As I understand there is one important thing you are detecting before comparison analysis two systems: Axes rules for RS and TS.
Results are really good. But what about other kind of data?
RS gives multiple tables and diagrams for each factor.
By the way I am going to test TS in few very simple tasks...
