Design of Aluminum Structures According to ADM 2015 and EC 9

Engineering Software for Aluminum Design

07/14/2017

The advantages of aluminum are evident: In spite of its high strength, it is relatively light and more resistant to corrosion than steel. It is used wherever these advantages prevail over the higher material price.
For example, it is often used in automotive and facade engineering, scaffolding and lightweight structures as well as in the construction of winter gardens and concert stages.

RFEM and RSTAB allow for structural analysis and design of aluminum structures according to the American standard ADM 2015 as well as Eurocode 9. For this, the add‑on modules RF‑/ALUMINUM ADM and RF‑/ALUMINUM are available.

Features of Aluminum Design

For the aluminum design, RF‑/ALUMINUM ADM and RF‑/ALUMINUM provide the following features, among others:

  • Ultimate and serviceability limit state designs of aluminum members according to the standards ADM 2015 and EN 1999‑1‑1:2007
  • Design for tension, compression, bending, shear, torsion, and combined internal forces
  • Stability analysis for flexural buckling, torsional buckling, and lateral torsional buckling
  • Optional cross-section optimization
  • Possibility to apply discrete lateral supports of beams
  • Cross-section classification according to Eurocode
  • Variety of cross‑sections provided, for example I-, C-, and T‑sections as well as rectangular and circular hollow sections, angles, round bars
