Residential Building in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico
JCR Estructural designed this residential building located in the city of Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico. The house is divided into two areas: the main area where the residential spaces are, and an independent area in the garden, for recreational use.

The structure consists of one-way concrete slabs supported by reinforced concrete columns and beams. Certain very high beams also serve as architectural elements. Likewise, several structural steel columns have been arranged that are esthetically integrated with the exterior glass enclosures.
The largest beam has a span of 61.02 ft, supporting the slab of a terrace and generating in turn an open porch for access to the pool. This beam has a height of 61.02 in. and a width of 17.72 in. The masonry is designed structurally, and the entire structure is founded on a nonlinear elastic support in the seismic zone. The model was designed with a dynamic analysis taking into account nonlinear behavior.
For the reinforced concrete design, RFEM in connection with the RF-CONCRETE add-on module was used. The design was carried out according to the American standard ACI. After the calculation, the CAD program Revit was used for further planning.

Building Model is one of the special solution add-ons in RFEM 6. It is an advantageous tool for modeling with which building stories can be created and manipulated easily. Building Model can be activated at the beginning of the modelling process and afterwards.

The number of degrees of freedom in a node is no longer a global calculation parameter in RFEM (6 degrees of freedom for each mesh node in 3D models, 7 degrees of freedom for the warping torsion analysis). Thus, each node is generally considered with a different number of degrees of freedom, which leads to a variable number of equations in the calculation.
This modification speeds up the calculation, especially for models where a significant reduction of the system could be achieved (e.g. trusses and membrane structures).
- How do I create a frame joint with taper in JOINTS Steel - Rigid?
- I would like to extend an existing structure with a false ceiling that is not connected to the existing columns. How can I model it?
- For line releases, I obtain the resultants in the horizontal direction, which I cannot understand.
- How can I display wind speeds at a certain height above the ground for a wind comfort analysis?
- Can I also use the wind load generator for open buildings?
- When evaluating the support reactions of a plate supported by line supports, I noticed that the support reaction pz' does not correspond to the shear force and deviates significantly. Why?
- How is it possible to consider the real cross-section geometry of member elements in RWIND Simulation?
- What is the meaning of the "Activate Weld Design" option in the detailed settings of RF‑/STEEL EC3?
- Why do I obtain different results for the same end plate joint in RF‑/JOINTS Steel - DSTV and RF‑/JOINTS Steel - Rigid?
- Can I also use RF‑SOILIN to calculate foundation bodies at different foundation heights in a model?
