RX-TIMBER DLT designs beams according to EN 1995‑1‑1 (Eurocode 5) or according to DIN 1052:2008‑12. Here, the design of the ultimate limit state, the serviceability limit state, and the fire resistance are performed.

Program Features

  • Design of the following geometrical types:
    • Single-span beams with and without cantilevers
    • Continuous beams with and without cantilevers
    • Hinged girder system (Gerber beams) with and without cantilevers
  • For design according to EC 5 (EN 1995), the following National Annexes are available:
    • Deutschland DIN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2013-08 (Germany)
    • NBN EN 1995-1-1/ANB:2012-07 (Belgium)
    • DK EN 1995-1-1/NA:2011-12 (Denmark)
    • SFS EN 1995-1-1/NA:2007-11 (Finland)
    • NF EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-05 (France)
    • UNI EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-09 (Italy)
    • NEN EN 1995-1-1/NB:2007-11 (Netherlands)
    • ÖNORM B 1995-1-1:2015-06 (Austria)
    • PN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-09 (Poland)
    • SS EN 1995-1-1 (Sweden)
    • STN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2008-12 (Slovakia)
    • SIST EN 1995-1-1/A101:2006-03 (Slovenia)
    • CSN EN 1995-1-1:2007-09 (Czech Republic)
    • BS EN 1995-1-1/NA:2009-10 (United Kingdom)
  • Automatic generation of wind and snow loads
  • Multiple optional reductions according to the selected standard
  • Simple geometry input with illustrative graphics
  • Free entry of tapered geometries.  Free selection of the grain angle allows for user-defined design of the compressive and tensile areas for bending
  • Comprehensive and extensible material library
  • Determination of design ratios, support forces, and deformations
  • Color reference scales in result tables
  • Direct data export to MS Excel
  • DXF interface for preparation production documents in CAD
  • Program languages: English, German, Czech, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Polish, Chinese, Dutch, and Russian
  • Verifiable printout report, including all required designs. Printout report available in many output languages, for example English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Polish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Dutch.
  • Direct import of stp files from various CAD programs

Input

There are various options available for beam modeling. Graphical representations facilitate the geometry input. Modifications are updated automatically. Deflection of cantilevers can be set in the serviceability limit state design, independently of the deflection in the span.

In order to enter permanent loads (for example, roof structure), you can use a comprehensive and extensible material library. Integrated generators allow for convenient generation of various wind and snow load cases.

Load cases are displayed graphically and superimposed in automatically generated load combinations according to EC 5. This way, the required input data are reduced to a minimum. However, you can enter load specifications manually as well.

Design

In RX-TIMBER Continuous Beam, the following calculation specifications are available:

  • Design of ULS, SLS, and/or fire resistance
  • Selection of designs to be performed
  • Determination of displaying support forces and deformations
  • Modification of the recommended limit values for SLS design
  • Definition of parameters for fire resistance design according to the simplified method
  • Optional vibration design

Results

After the calculation, the results of performed designs, including all required intermediate values, are displayed in clearly arranged result tables sorted by various criteria. Since the program displays the intermediate values in detail, the transparency of all designs is ensured. It is possible to display the distribution of internal forces for each x-location of the beam in a separate graphical window. Here, both the deformations and the individual internal forces can be displayed.

Designs with design details and selected result diagrams can be added in the printout report, providing clearly arranged documentation. The printout report can include graphics, descriptions, drawings, and more. Moreover, it is possible to select which calculation data will be covered in the printout.
