This model was used to explain the displaying of intersections at free surface loads.
Model Used in
Often in RFEM, only part of and not an entire surface must be loaded. A typical case of this is soil pressure. For this purpose, there is the option of defining free surface loads. They are surface-independent and are displayed in defined coordinate dimensions in the graphic.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
- The four plates, identically loaded, show different negative moments at the point of support. Is this a mistake?
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- Is it possible to design bidirectional ribbed plates, unidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs in RFEM?
- Is it possible to set user-defined values when viewing solid stress results?
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- Why is the deflection of the reinforced concrete floor sometimes greater when selecting a larger basic reinforcement?
- What is the best way to consider steel fiber reinforced concrete with the structural analysis program RFEM?
- How is the position of the additional reinforcement considered in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces when determining hc,ef?
- I would expect the results from my load combination (CO) set to a linear analysis to equal the summation of the results from my load cases (LC) also set to a linear analysis. Why do the results not match?
