Design of Tapered Members from Timber
First Steps with RFEM
In this video you can see how a tapered beam can be designed for stability with the equivalent member method. For this simplified approach a so called effective height is taken in order to give a conservative design of the beam.
Additionally the various section options in RFEM 6 are presented.

In this article an RFEM 6-specific function is presented, by which you can assign an eccentricity to the nodal supports and thus influence the determination of the critical bending moment considered in the stability analysis.
