Composite Timber Beams
Model to Download
In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, it is possible to consider the flexibility of the connections at composed timber sections in the individual layers. This is achieved by entering the reduction factor gamma determined using the ‘gamma method’, for example, according to EN 1995‑1‑1 (Annex B) or DIN 1052:2008 (8.6.2).
This is demonstrated by applying this model.
