Evaluating and Documenting Steel Joints Analysis Results in RFEM 6
With the RFEM 6 add-on Steel Joints, you can analyze steel connections by using an FE model. This article demonstrates how to evaluate and document the steel joints analysis results.
- The load distribution on my members looks different when using the Load Transfer surface vs. the Load Wizards. What is the reason?
- I received an error message “Surface of incompatible type... (Surface in upper plane of building story must be of ‘Load transfer’ type)” when running the calculation. What is the reason?
- My beam has a continuous lateral support and therefore lateral torsional buckling (LTB) is not a concern. How do I define the effective length?
