Effective Sections

Product Description

  • RSECTION for Various Cross-Sections

Determination of Effective Sections

Advantages

Effective Sections

  • Stress determination and graphic display on an effective cross-section and gross cross-section according to EN 1993‑1‑1 and EN 1993‑1‑5, EN 1993‑1‑3, and EN 1999‑1‑1
  • Consideration of the effects of distortional buckling of cold-formed sections via eigenvalue method

Effective Sections is an extension of RSECTION. It determines the effective sections according to the following standards:

  • European Union EN 1993-1-5
  • European Union EN 1993-1-3
  • European Union EN 1999-1-1

Input

Effective Sections is fully integrated in RSECTION, so all input options of RSECTION are available. In the base data, you only have to specify the standard group according to which the effective section is determined. After importing the section into the main program RFEM or RSTAB, it is available for design in the Steel Design add-on like a library section.

Results

The design results are displayed in the usual way in the Steel Design add-on. The corresponding output tables show, among other things, the classification, the effective section properties, and the design check. The stresses are displayed graphically on the effective section as well as on the gross section.
