QUESTION: If the user is checking the reaction for Double tandem  or double truck. How could the user know the max reaction is for double truck or double tandem (see below) via looking at the reactions output from beam results?


Right now it is not possible to differentiate if the final reactions is for double truck or tandem as the output results does not mention what type of vehicle it is . The users have to do some testing to figure out the vehicle which is generating the maximum reactions.
