Dlubal RFEM 5 & RSTAB 8 – Transfer of Loads as Masses in RF-/DYNAM Pro – Natural Vibrations

By Stefan Frenzel, Dlubal Software

In RF-/DYNAM Pro – Natural Vibrations, it is possible to transfer complete load cases/load combinations as masses. For this, you can simply save the load case or the load combination to be considered as a mass case in the add-on module.

Thus, it is possible to assign the relevant load cases or load combinations to a mass case and then include them in a mass combination together with partial safety factors.

Dlubal Software at the APK Steel Conference in Cachan, Paris

By Robert Vogl, Dlubal Software

On the 25th and 26th March 2015, a steel conference took place at the College of Cachan. Its focus was set on the aspects of the new EN 1090 codes. The seminar was organized by the French steel association APK (Association pour la promotion de l’enseignement de la construction acier) whose goal it is to promote steel construction in practice and education.

Being a partner of APK, Dlubal Software SARL provided a stand during that conference. The participants took the chance for expert talks and to experience the high performance of the Dlubal products.

Dlubal RFEM 5 & RSTAB 8 – Cleaning “Numerical Pollution” After DXF Import

By René Flori, Dlubal Software

In the cooperation of structural and design engineers, the DXF format is often used if there is no direct interface. However, the geometrical data of these DXF files are not always accurate. For example, an inaccuracy in the third decimal place is not noticeable, but it can lead to numerical problems when generating the FE mesh in RFEM.

To avoid such problems, RFEM provides the “Round Node Coordinates” option under “Tools” -> “Regenerate Model”. This option is also available in RSTAB.

Dlubal RFEM 5 & RSTAB 8 – Design of Shear Force Between Member Web and Flange in RF-/CONCRETE (Members)

By Moritz Bertram, Dlubal Software

With the latest version of CONCRETE and RF-CONCRETE Members, it is possible to perform shear design for the connection of compression and tension flanges on a T-beam web, for example.

For this, you need to select the “Design of flange connections on segmented cross-sections” check box in the “Details” dialog box. In addition, you can select the method by which the longitudinal force difference is determined. There are two methods available: the simplified method using inner lever arm z = 0.9*d without consideration of Mz, and the general integration of stresses in single cross-section parts with consideration of Mz.

The resulting reinforcement as well as the intermediate results are available under results after the calculation.

By Markus Baumgärtel, Dlubal Software

In RFEM and RSTAB, it is now also possible to create a video file of the results of all load cases, load combinations and result combinations. Thus, you can very easily create a visual presentation of a moving load crossing a bridge, for example. This function is available under “Tools” -> “Create Video File”.

By Sonja von Bloh, Dlubal Software

The new “Generate Nodes on Intersection Point of Lines” creates a node at the intersection point of lines without splitting the lines. The function is available under “Tools” -> “Generate Nodes at Intersection Point of Lines”. In the work window, you can simply draw a window over the intersection point where a node is to be generated.

Dlubal RFEM 5 & RSTAB 8 – Editing Parametrized Cross-Section

By Robert Vogl, Dlubal Software

Geometric parameters of a parameterized cross-section are “encoded” in the cross-section description (for example IS 240/100/6/10/0). When editing the cross-section subsequently, you can display the input parameters again: Click the [Edit] button to open the corresponding dialog box where you can modify the parameters.

This function is also useful for editing combined or hybrid cross-sections.
