Hemsedal Alpine Suites, Norway
The "Hemsedal Ski Center" in the Scandinavian Alps is one of the top 3 ski resorts in Norway. It comprises a total of 49 ski slopes and 20 surface lifts. At the foot of the mountainside, a new apartment hotel with 100 modern rooms will be completed by the end of 2017.

In addition to an underground parking garage, a restaurant and commercial units, it will also contain climbing walls, among other things.
DBC AS from Gol, Norway, analyzed the spatial model in RFEM and provided the internal forces to the producer of prefabricated construction (concrete & steel). Furthermore, DBC AS was responsible for the detailed planning of all in-situ concrete constructions.
Hemsedal Alpine Suites consists of two buildings with 6 floors each. The buildings are connected to each other by spatial steel trusses made of square pipe sections.
The model of Building A consists of 795 members and 421 surfaces. The main materials used are steel and reinforced concrete.
For the roof covering of the building, Lett‑Tak elements were used (sandwich elements with integrated thin steel sections). These elements were modeled as orthotropic surfaces with the stiffnesses determined by the Lett‑Tak company on the basis of tests.

The construction industry is increasingly digitized. Structural engineers, a smaller group in the construction industry, are not always considered as engineers who immediately join the latest trends. Often for good reason.

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.
- When I apply an area load to a surface with an opening, the load is not not accounted for at the opening. Is it possible to automatically consider the area load as a line load around the opening perimeter?
- Is it also possible to determine stiffnesses of an existing column instead of a fixed nodal support?
- I just have to calculate an open hall with low roof loads and relatively high wind loads compared to it. In theory, a design of the bottom flange for buckling/toppling would have to be performed. Unfortunately, there is no combination of 1.0 * G +1.5 * W.
- How do I get the largest column load in my RFEM 3D model?
Why are my steel members not being designed for stability in RF-STEEL AISC?
- My section is classified as Class 4 and non-designable in RF-/STEEL CSA. However, my manual calculation shows a different class. Why the difference?
- 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.
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- I would like to perform the punching shear design on a column with connected downstand beams as a wall corner or Perform wall end. However, the module applies an internal column. Is it possible to adjust it?
