Dear Mukesh,

The agree with the reply given by Rajiv about the Master Slave option.

Due to simulation of rigid diaphragm action using master slave command, the
relative displacement between two joints of a beam is zero, hence you get no
axial force in the output. But at the same time this diaphragm ensures the
distribution of lateral loads to the columns in proportion to their
stiffness. The equilibrium is achieved by transferring the lateral forces to
columns through the rigid body.

If you want  to get the axial force in the beams and at the same time want
to simulate the diaphragm action, use very high value of IY for floor beams
and see the results.

With thanks and regards.
