After activating the RF‑PIPING add‑on module, a new toolbar is available in RFEM and the project navigator and tables are extended. Piping modeling is performed in a similar way as members. Pipe bends are defined by using tangents (straight pipe sections) and bend radius at the same time. Thus, it is easy to subsequently change bend parameters.
It is also possible to extend the piping subsequently by defining special components (expansion joints, valves, and others). The implemented libraries of structural components facilitate the definition.
Continuous pipe sections are defined as sets of piping systems. For piping loads, member loads are assigned to the respective load cases. The combination of loads is included in piping load combinations and result combinations. After the calculation, you can display deformations, member internal forces and support forces graphically or in tables.
Pipe stress analysis according to standards can then be performed in the RF‑PIPING Design add‑on module. You only need to select the relevant sets of piping systems and load situations.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Why is it not possible to use result combinations in RF-STABILITY? In RSBUCK, however, it is possible.
- After I have opened a gable roof beam made of RX-TIMBER in RFEM/RSTAB, it is displayed with a gap in the ridge area. Does this affect the calculation?
- How can I additionally model welds for the connection of two surfaces with a contact solid?
- Which add-on modules and programs do I need for laminate and sandwich structures as well as cross-laminated timber (CLT)?
- Are the Dlubal Software programs suitable for the analysis and design of hydraulic steel structures?
- I would like to calculate cable and cable mesh structures. Is this possible with RFEM or RSTAB?
- I would like to use surface releases to model a bolt connection, which can only absorb compressive stresses from the support. Unfortunately, I cannot do this because my model is always unstable. Is there a model as a template?
- How do I display the nodal displacements graphically?
- Are silos/tanks possible to export from RFEM into Revit?
- I would like to perform a stability analysis of the upper flange in a long truss. What is the best way to proceed?
