The design of cold-rolled steel products is defined in EN 1993-1-3. When designing the ultimate limit states, it is also necessary to ensure that local transverse forces do not lead to compression, crippling of the web or local buckling in the web of the sections.
SHAPE-THIN Table "6.2 Classification of the Cross-Section According to EN 1993-1" and Stress Diagram
- Available for cold-formed L, Z, C, channel, top-hat, and CL sections from the cross-section database, as well as for cold-formed (non-perforated) SHAPE-THIN 9 cross-sections
- Determination of the effective cross-section considering the local buckling and the distortional buckling
- Cross-section ultimate limit state, stability, and serviceability limit state designs according to EN 1993‑1‑3
- Design of local transverse forces for webs without stiffening
- Available for all National Annexes included in RF-/STEEL EC3
- RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion module extension (license required) for stability analysis according to the second-order analysis as stress analysis including consideration of the 7th degree of freedom (warping)
- How do I activate or run RF‑/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections?
- I would like to design a cross-section in RF‑/STEEL Cold‑Formed Sections that is not contained in the cross-section library of RFEM/RSTAB. What should I do?
- Why do I get high differences when designing a longitudinally stiffened buckling panel compared to the German and Austrian National Annexes?
- How are the signs to be interpreted for the release results of the line release and line hinges?
- How can I create a curved or curved section?
- 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 are hot -dip galvanized components considered for fire protection in the Steel EC 3 add -on module?
- How is the rotational stiffness of a buckling stiffener determined in FE-BUCKLING?
- In RF-/STEEL EC3, is the "Elastic design (also for cross-section class 1 and 2)" option under "Details → Ultimate Limit State" considered for the stability analysis when activated?
- How can I get the member end forces to design the connections?
