Stress points for shear stresses
Model Used in
The stresses in the cross‑section of the member are calculated in the so‑called stress points. These points are set at such locations in the cross‑section, at which the extreme values for the stresses due to the loading types can occur in the material.
The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral-torsional buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared to the maximal allowable deflection.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads.
Design-relevant parameters such as the stability analysis type, member slendernesses, and limit deflections can be freely adjusted.
- Can I quickly optimize all cross-sections in my model by using internal forces?
- How can I control an overpressed joint in the ridge?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "floor"?
- "During the calculation of material non-linearity, the material with a decreasing branch of the diagram can be calculated with one load increment only." Why do I get this error?
- How do I display some results of all load cases in the printout report, but other results of the selected load cases only?
- How does the "Orthotropic Plastic" material model work in RFEM?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2019 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- I can not calculate members with double rectangular cross-sections and linearly variable cross-section height in the HolzPro add-on module. What is the reason?
- Can the properties, such as B. the cross -section or the surface thickness as well as the material of a surface of an existing element for a new element?
- I have defined temperature loads, strain loads, or a precamber. As soon as I modify stiffnesses, the deformations are no longer plausible.
