How many members can be connected to a node in RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber and what is the minimum angle between the members?


In order to perform a smooth calculation, the program defines a maximum number of connected members as well as a minimum angle between members. The geometric conditions are defined as follows:

  • Maximum number of connected members: 8
  • Minimum length of a member: 42 cm
  • Minimum angle between members: 15°

If these boundary conditions are not met, a further calculation is not possible.
