By assigning a cross-section and the related material, the member gets a stiffness. Members are always connected by the nodes only.
Members do not have any lateral expansion. Thus, they are an idealization of real structural components.
The RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module automatically transfers the buckling line to be used for the flexural buckling analysis for a cross-section from the cross-section properties. In particular for general cross -sections, but also for special cases, the assignment of the buckling line can be adjusted manually in the module input.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
- Why do I get high differences when designing a longitudinally stiffened buckling panel compared to the German and Austrian National Annexes?
- How can I perform the stability analysis for an edgewise supported flat steel, for example 100/5, in RF-/STEEL EC3? Although the cross-section is rotated by 90 ° in RFEM/RSTAB, it is displayed lying flat in RF-/STEEL EC3.
- How can I create a curved or curved section?
- How are the signs to be interpreted for the release results of the line release and line hinges?
- How is the rotational stiffness of a buckling stiffener determined in FE-BUCKLING?
- How are hot -dip galvanized components considered for fire protection in the Steel EC 3 add -on module?
- Is it possible to manually specify a longitudinal reinforcement for the design in RF-PUNCH Pro?
- After the design with RF-/TIMBER Pro, I had a cross-section optimized. Why is the utilization of the optimized cross -section now exceeded?
- Is it possible to design the support pressure or the sleeper pressure in RX-TIMBER?
- Can I simulate the cracked state of a concrete cross -section for a bending beam with the "Isotropic Nonlinear Elastic 1D" material model?
