ContentOnline basic training on earthquake design according to Eurocode 8 using the FEM static program RFEM
In this training you will learn the basics of structural dynamics and the most important verification methods for earthquake design. Using a practical example, the multi-modal response spectrum method and its implementation in RFEM and the associated modules of the RF-DYNAM Pro series is explained. Open questions can be discussed.

"I have watched the webinar recording "Design of Cross-laminated Timber Panels (CLT) According to Eurocode 5" on YouTube and I am impressed by about the program and the very good presentation.
When calculating a surface model, the internal forces are determined separately for each finite element. Since the element-by-element results usually represent a discontinuous distribution, RFEM performs a so-called smoothing of the internal forces.

- Do you provide a free viewer to open the RFEM or RSTAB files?
- Does it make any difference if I model a flush beam as a "Rib" or as a "Result Beam"?
- How can I create a solid of revolution?
- How can I select the members that have a certain material?
- How can I define the exact location in the case of a message saying that distorted FE elements have been found? These areas cannot be detected at first glance.
- I cannot select, move or delete my line grids anymore. Can you help me?
In the case of member loads, the loads are entered in Table "3.2 Member Loads." I can view or change the values.
In my model, I have applied generated loads. Should the member loads not be also visible in Table "3.15 Generated Loads"?
- RF-/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads includes the result tables "5.8/5.9/5.10 - Equivalent Loads." Which sum is displayed in the case of the "All mode shapes" option?
- Is it possible to display natural frequencies separately for each direction?
- Is it possible to consider the second-order theory in a dynamic analysis in RSTAB?
