Garage Pétry à ROOST
In Roost, Luxembourg, a new building complex is built relating to cars. There will be up to six car dealerships, a car park, and a paint shop built on the site. The construction project was divided into two planning phases. The first phase includes three multi-storey car dealerships. They have the same supporting structure.

Dimensions of a car dealership
Schatz Engineering, a customer of Dlubal Software, was responsible for the structural and design engineering of the building complex. RSTAB has been used for structural design, and Tekla Structures for design engineering.
The three structurally identical car dealerships have the external dimensions L x W x H of about 37 m x 28 m x 13 m.
The supporting structure consists of precast columns with molded foundations. Precast concrete supports are placed on column corbels. Walls were designed as concrete hollow walls. Floors and ceilings are made of precast concrete slabs. The roof structure and the facade substructure were designed as a steel structure.
BIM Planning with RSTAB and Tekla Structures
The project planning has been carried out in Tekla Structures. The Tekla model was transferred to RSTAB using the direct interface. After performing the structural analysis, beam dimensions have been updated in the Tekla model.
Tekla Structures was also used to create formwork and reinforcement drawings for the precast concrete elements, garage design, schemes and NC data for the steel structure, among other things.

Structure stability is not a new phenomenon when referring to steel design. The Canadian steel design standard CSA S16 and the most recent 2019 release is no exception.
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.
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?
- I am getting the message that my material does not meet the requirements of the current standard. How can I correct this?
- Is it possible to design bidirectional ribbed plates, unidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs in RFEM?
- Why are the values of a column base, head or center on the individual columns only displayed partially for the results from the calculation in RF‑CONCRETE Columns?
- I am trying to manually check the deformations from the CRANEWAY add-on module. However, I obtain great deviations. How to explain the differences?
Programs Used for Structural Analysis
