Verification Example 000074 | 4
A two-story single‑bay frame structure is subjected to earthquake loading. Modulus of elasticity and cross‑section of the frame beams are much larger than those of the columns, so the beams can be considered rigid. Elastic response spectrum is given by the SIA 261/1:2003 standard.
Model Used in
The effects due to snow load are described in the American standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 and in Eurocode 1, Parts 1 through 3. These standards are implemented in the new RFEM 6 program and the Snow Load Wizard, which serves to facilitate the application of snow loads. In addition to this, the most recent generation of the program allows the construction site to be specified on a digital map, thus allowing the snow load zone to be imported automatically. These data are, in turn, used by the Load Wizard to simulate the effects due to the snow load.
- What is the maximum number of reinforcement groups that can be created in a design case in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces?
- I would like to perform punching design of a floor slab. I have selected nodes for the design, but they are marked as invalid. Where did I make a mistake?
- Is the deformation analysis in state II included in the concrete design in RFEM 6?
- How can I open the interaction diagram from Concrete Design?
- Why are the members invalid for the Concrete Design add-on?
- Is it possible to design single-layer reinforced surfaces with RFEM 6?
- Where can I activate creep for concrete design?
- How do I perform stability analysis to determine the critical load factor in RFEM 6?
- What is the meaning of the two terms "Factorize provided reinforcement" and "Optimize provided reinforcement" in the concrete design?
- Can I switch the required reinforcement in the result tables from "mesh nodes" to "grid points?"
