Design of Cold-Formed Steel Members According to EN 1993‑1‑3
First Steps with RFEM
Do you need cross-section design checks for cold-formed steel members according to EN 1993‑1‑3?
No matter if you design the cold-formed sections from the cross-section library or the general cold-formed (non-perforated) sections from RSECTION – your structural analysis program helps you to determine the effective cross-section, taking into account the local buckling and instability. You can also perform a cross-section check according to EN 1993‑1‑3, 6.1.6. In this case, the internal forces from the calculation using Torsional Warping (7 DOF) are taken into account by means of the equivalent stress check
