Example of Timber Structure
A standard scenario in timber member construction is the ability to connect smaller members by means of bearing on a larger girder member. Additionally, member end conditions may include a similar situation where the beam is bearing on a support type. In either scenario, the beam must be designed to consider the bearing capacity perpendicular to the grain according to the NDS 2018 (Sect. 3.10.2) and the CSA O86:19 (Clause 6.5.6 and 7.5.9). In the new generation RFEM 6 and Timber Design add-on, the added feature 'design supports' now allows users to comply with the NDS and CSA bearing perpendicular to the grain design checks.

- Why does the load wizard "Member Load from Area Load" give unnecessary concentrated loads?
- How do I define a member as a cantilever and not as supported at both ends for serviceability or deflection design?
- Where can find the option to hide the defined types (for example, design supports or effective lengths)?
- How can I neglect torsion in the steel and timber design?
The load distribution on my members looks different when using the Load Transfer surface vs. the Load Wizards. What is the reason?
