Cross-Section Model for Webinar 'Design of Cold-Formed Steel Sections According to Eurocode 3'
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.
The design results are displayed in RF-/STEEL EC3 in the usual way.
Among other results, the corresponding result windows include the effective cross-section properties due to axial force N, bending moment My, bending moment Mz, internal forces, and design summary.
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the design add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
- In RF‑/STEEL EC3, I get an error message saying that the node with a support does not exist in the set of members. What is the reason?
- How do I display some results of all load cases in the printout report, but other results of the selected load cases only?
- Is it also possible to subsequently deactivate the symbols for the FE mesh refinement in an existing graphic in a printout report?
- What is the difference between SHAPE‑THIN 9 and SHAPE‑THIN 8?
- SHAPE‑THIN calculates a very small shear area. Why?
- When calculating a connection using the FRAME‑JOINT Pro add-on module, a message appears saying that the value is out of the valid range (existing value: 108, minimum value 100, maximum value 100). What does this message mean?
- I have a trapezoidal roof structure supported by beams. However, the moments on the beams are smaller than they should be. What could be the reason for this?
- How can I export the effective lengths from the RF‑STABILITY add-on module to Excel?
- In the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module, I have selected two bracings with the same size as the shear panel type in the "Parameters" window for a beam to be designed. Thus, the beam should be supported laterally in the middle. Why is the eigenvector arbitrary anyhow?
