This article shows how to manage the input data for member and surface design configurations within the Stress-Strain Analysis add-on.
The limit stress is activated, but my stress ratio is “non-designable” in the Stress-Strain Analysis add-on. What could be the reason?
- Is it possible to display the deformation analysis of a surface (limit 0.5‰)?
- Why does the load wizard "Member Load from Area Load" give unnecessary concentrated loads?
- In the case of stairs with a complicated geometry, it is often difficult to design welds by using the analytical methods. How can I do this with RFEM?
- For the settlement calculation in the RF‑SOILIN add-on module, the specific weight gamma and gamma,sat are required for the soil. What do I need the value gamma,sat for, and how is it assumed in the calculation?
- How does the "Orthotropic Plastic" material model work in RFEM?
- I would like to define a line support with ineffective tension and apply the tension force on this line using a nodal support instead. Why does the line support still receive a tension force?
- Is it possible to consider the reduction of strength in the heat affected zone (HAZ) in the RF‑/ALUMINUM add-on module?
- The design ratio of the cross-section check is different for the RF‑/STEEL and RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on modules. What is the reason?
RFEM 6 structural analysis software is the basis of a modular software system. The main RFEM 6 program is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as to model solid and contact elements.
The Stress-Strain Analysis add-on performs a general stress analysis by calculating the existing stresses and comparing them to the limit stresses.
