ContentFree Webinar | Timber Beam and Surface Structures | Part 1: Modeling, Load Input, Combinatorics
In this webinar we show you how to use the structural analysis software RFEM for modeling beam and surface structures made of timber, entering loads, and combining load cases. In a second part, we demonstrate the design of beams, surfaces and connections.
Below, under Models to Download, you can find the model(s) used in the webinar. This will allow you to independently follow the webinar step by step with the provided model after the presentation is complete. Furhtermore, each participant will receive a certificate indicating the name provided during the registration.

If a timber connection is designed as shown in Figure 01, the torsional spring stiffness resulting from the connection can be considered. This can be determined by using the modulus of displacement of the fastener and the polar moment of inertia of the connection, neglecting the area of the fastener.
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- How can I create a curved or arched section?
- I design timber components. The deformations of load combinations deviate from the manual calculation exactly by the factor of the material partial safety factor. Why?
- Is it possible to display more values for the stress distribution over the layers in RF‑LAMINATE?
- How can I design dowel-laminated timber (DLT) or nail-laminated timber (NLT) in RFEM?
- Which Dlubal Software programs can I use to calculate and design timber structures?
- How can I set the deformation coefficient kdef in the program?
- How can I perform a stability analysis for a tapered member?
- After opening a duopitch roof beam from RX‑TIMBER in RFEM/RSTAB, it is displayed with a gap in the apex zone. Does this affect the calculation?
- Which add-on modules and programs do I need for laminate and sandwich structures as well as cross-laminated timber (CLT)?
