The RF-/STEEL GB add‑on module performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state design of steel members and sets of members according to:

  •  GB 50017‑2003 (Chinese standard)

  1. Features

    • Design of tension, compression, bending, shear, and combined internal forces
    • Stability analysis of flexural buckling and lateral-torsional buckling
    • Automatic determination of critical buckling loads and overall stability factors for lateral-torsional buckling according to Annex B
    • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams
    • Automatic local stability analysis and check of plastic design criteria of a cross-section
    • Deformation analysis (serviceability)
    • Cross-section optimization
    • Wide range of cross-sections available, for example rolled I-sections, C-sections, rectangular hollow sections, angles and T-sections. Welded sections: I-shaped (symmetrical and asymmetrical about major axis), channel sections (symmetrical about major axis), rectangular hollow sections, angles, round pipes and round bars.
    • Clearly arranged result tables
    • Detailed result documentation including references to design equations of the standard used
    • Various filter and sorting options of results including result lists by member, cross-section, x-location, or by load cases, load and result combinations
    • Result table of member slenderness and governing internal forces
    • Parts list with weight and solid specifications
    • Seamless integration in RFEM/RSTAB
  2. Working with RF-/STEEL GB

    It is necessary to enter material, load and combination data in RFEM/RSTAB in compliance with the design concept specified by GB 50017. The RFEM/RSTAB material library already contains relevant materials.

    The RF-/STEEL GB add-on module requires members and sets of members as well as load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed.

    In the subsequent input windows, you can adjust preset definitions of lateral intermediate supports and effective lengths. Based on this setting, the module determines critical loads and moments required for the stability analysis.

  3. Results

    The first result window shows the maximum design ratios including the corresponding design of each designed load case, load combination, or result combination.

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

    Complete module data is part of the RFEM/RSTAB printout report. You can select the report contents and extent specifically for the individual designs.
