The RF-/ALUMINUM ADM add-on module performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state designs of members and sets of members according to the American standards ADM 2010, ADM 2015 and ADM 2020. It includes the analysis methods:

  •  Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)
  •  Allowable Stress Design (ASD)

  1. Features

    • Design of members and sets of members for tension, compression, bending, shear, torsion, and combined internal forces
    • Stability analysis of buckling, torsional-flexural, and lateral-torsional buckling
    • Automatic determination of effective radius of gyration by special integrated FEA software (eigenvalue analysis) for general loading and support conditions
    • Alternative analytical calculation of effective radius of gyration for standard situations
    • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams
    • Definition of nodal supports for sets of members
    • Serviceability limit state design (deflection)
    • Cross-section optimization
    • Wide range of cross-sections available; for example, I-, C-, and T‑sections as well as angles, rectangular and circular hollow sections, round bars, and many others
    • Detailed result documentation, including references to design equations of the used standard
    • Various filter and sorting options of results, including result lists by member, cross-sections, and x-location, or by load case, load and result combination
    • Result table of member slenderness and governing internal forces
    • Metric and imperial units
  2. Working with RF-/ALUMINUM ADM

    First, it is necessary to decide whether to perform the design according to ASD or LRFD. Then, you can enter the load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed. Load combinations according to ASCE 7 can be generated either manually or automatically in RFEM/RSTAB.

    Further specifications include presetting of lateral intermediate supports, effective lengths, and other standard-specific design parameters. When using continuous members, it is possible to define individual support conditions and eccentricities at each intermediate node of the single members. A special FEA tool then internally determines the effective radii of gyration required for the stability analysis for these situations.

  3. Results

    The first result window shows the maximum design ratios with the corresponding design of each designed load case (load combination / result combination).

    The other result windows list all detailed results sorted by specific subject in extensible tree menus. All intermediate results along a member can be displayed at any location. This way, you can easily retrace how the module has performed the individual designs.

    The complete data from the module are part of the RFEM/RSTAB printout report.
